Source: Taxation In Australia Journal Article

Published Date: 1 Jun 2000

The taxpayer received an assessment for capital gain made on a property disposed of in 1988, which the Commissioner argued was assessable under the Capital Gains Tax provisions since the property was acquired post 19 September 1985. The taxpayer argued that the property had been acquired under a contract entered into prior to this date. The factual and legal issue to be determined by the AAT, was when the contract had been made; and held the property was acquired prior to 19 September 1985. The article also describes the distinction between this case and McDonald v Commissioner of Taxation.
