On 22 October 2009 the Assistant Treasurer announced the release of a discussion paper entitled: ‘Improving the fairness and integrity of the tax system: Extending the Tax File Number withholding arrangements to closely held trusts, including family trusts’.

The discussion paper outlines the 2009-10 Budget measure to extend the current TFN withholding arrangements to closely held trusts, including family trusts, in order to ensure that the assessable distributions to beneficiaries of those trusts align with the amounts included by those beneficiaries in their tax returns.
