The Minister for Primary Industry, the Hon. J.D.

Anthony, today announced the release of a new edition of

the booklet "Income Tax for Primary Producers'+.

This publication, previously titled "Income Tax

for Farmers & Graziers" is prepared by officers of the

Commonwealth Taxation Office and published by the Department

of Primary Industry to assist primary producers by keeping

them informed on the special taxation concessions made

available to them and by explaining as clearly as possible

the requirements of income tax law as it applies to their

fields of income. The new (8th) Edition of the booklet has

been expanded to include information of use to fishermen.

Mr. Anthony said he hoped the material in this

publication would assist primary producers in general to

bring their undertakings to a higher level of economic

productivity.

Copies of the booklet are available on request

from the Regional Offices of the Department of Primary Industry

in each Capital City and from the offices of the Deputy

Commissioner of Taxation in every State as well as from the

offices of the Department of Primary Industry and the

Taxation Office in Canberra.
