Exposure Draft - Minor Amendments to Tax Laws


Friday, 28 January 2011

Content ID:



The attached exposure draft and draft explanatory memorandum relate to proposed minor amendments to the taxation laws. The community’s views are sought on the proposed amendments.

The amendments seek to ensure the law operates as intended, by correcting technical or drafting defects, removing anomalies and addressing unintended outcomes. The amendments also include minor improvements to the tax laws. The amendments are part of the Government’s commitment to the care and maintenance of the taxation laws.

Some of the amendments address issues raised through the Tax Issues Entry System (TIES). The TIES website (www.ties.gov.au), operated jointly by the Australian Taxation Office and Treasury, provides a vehicle for tax professionals and the general public to raise issues relating to the care and maintenance of the tax system.
