Exposure Draft - Miscellaneous Amendments


Tuesday, 11 October 2011

Content ID:



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