Exposure Draft - Tax Laws Amendment (2010 Measures No. 5) Bill 2010: Extending CGT exemption for certain compulsory acquisitions


Tuesday, 15 June 2010

Content ID:



On 15 June 2010, the Assistant Treasurer released exposure draft legislation for the measure to extend the capital gains tax (CGT) main residence exemption for compulsory acquisitions (and certain other involuntary events) relating to part of a taxpayer's main residence.

The draft legislation allows a taxpayer to disregard a capital gain or a capital loss where there is a compulsory acquisition (or similar arrangement) of adjacent land or an adjacent structure that is part of the taxpayer's main residence where the dwelling is not also being compulsorily acquired.
