SECTION 45-605   WHEN DO YOU GET A TAX BENEFIT FROM A SCHEME?  

45-605(1)  
This section describes how to work out whether you get a tax benefit from a *scheme and, if so, the amount of the tax benefit.

45-605(2)  
First, determine your actual *tax position for an income year (apart from this Subdivision).

45-605(3)  
Next, determine your *hypothetical tax position for the same income year (apart from this Subdivision).

45-605(4)  
Then compare each *component of the 2 positions. If the amount of that component of the actual *tax position is lower than the amount of that component of the *hypothetical tax position, the difference between the 2 amounts is a tax benefit that you get from the *scheme.

Note 1:

The difference between the 2 amounts is not a tax benefit to the extent that it is attributable to certain things for which the income tax law expressly provides. See section 45-635 .

Note 2:

An entity may get 2 or more tax benefits from the same scheme. One reason is that the scheme may affect 2 or more components of the entity ' s tax position for an income year. Another reason is that the scheme may affect the tax position for 2 or more income years.
