The test case litigation program was established to fund cases that have broader implications beyond the dispute with the ATO.
The program provides financial assistance to taxpayers to help them meet some or all of their reasonable litigation costs (and pre-litigation costs in limited circumstances) associated with clarifying tax, superannuation and, in some instances, debt-related issues.
