Abstract:

On 22 August 2007 the Government announced the Review of Unlimited Amendment Periods in the Income Tax Laws and released a Treasury discussion paper which examines those provisions in the tax law that allow an indefinite time for the Commissioner of Taxation to amend taxpayers’ assessments to ensure the correct amount of tax has been paid.

The discussion paper advances recommendation 3.7 of the Review of Aspects of Income Tax Self Assessment by examining unlimited amendment periods and proposing to replace most of them with the standard amendment periods, fixed amendment periods, or amendment periods based on a contingent event.
