ETP payment on account of redundancy not a "genuine redundancy payment" for tax purposes - Harste
06 Aug 2013
The AAT has held that a payment received by the taxpayer when his position with his employer was made redundant was not a "genuine redundancy payment" for tax purposes because it was made to him when he was 67 years of age. For an ETP to be a "genuine redundancy payment", s 83-175(2)(a) ITAA 1997 requires the payment to be made to the taxpayer no later than the day he turned 65 years of age.
