Tax Office gains access to material filed in the family court proceedings

My colleagues at View Legal have on their blog made reference to a recent decision of the Full Court of the Family Court of Australia.  It relates to the ability of the ATO to obtain and use material filed in family law proceeds for the purposes of taxation compliance and investigation.

The decison is in the case of FCT & Darling [2014] FamCAFC 59.

Today, View Legal has also published a new post relating to the ATO’s release of a Decision Impact Statement about how this decision will effect ATO policy.  Click here to access the post.

My thanks to Matthew Burgess, Tara Lucke, Pat Ellwood and Naomi Arnold for their fanastic blog and for permission to link to their site.
