A current controversy and the rule of law

Source: Taxation In Australia Journal Article

Published Date: 1 Oct 2009

In its recent submission to Treasury on “extra-statutory concessions”, the Taxation Institute has (quite rightly in the author’s view) raised the issue of erosion of the rule of law. This paper submits, though, that such a regime need not of itself offend the principles of the rule of law (though that leaves open the serious practical question of whether such a regime would in fact have the effect of eroding the rule of law).
