Passage History

Income Tax (Untainting Tax) Bill 1998

Date Introduced: 8 April 1998

House:  House of Representatives

Portfolio:  Treasury

Commencement:  At the same time as Schedule 1 of the Taxation Laws Amendment (Company Law Review) Bill 1998.

Purpose

To impose formally tax payable to untaint a company’s share capital account.

Background

For information on the tainting of share capit al accounts refer to the Digest for the Taxation Laws Amendment (Company Law Review) Bill 1998.

This Bill is necessary because of section 55 of the Constitution which provides that laws imposing taxation shall deal only with the imposition of taxation and provisions dealing with any other matter will be of no effect. As a result, when a tax is imposed it is necessary to have separate Bill to impose formally the tax.

Main Provisions

Clause 3 of the Bill will impose formally the tax payable under the Taxation Laws Amendment (Company Law Review) Bill 1998.
