(b) one or more of the following applies:


(i) the taxpayer took steps to prevent or hinder the Commissioner from becoming aware of the shortfall or part;

(ii) if the shortfall or part was caused otherwise than by the taxpayer in a taxation statement treating an income tax law as applying to the taxpayer in relation to a matter or scheme in a particular way - the taxpayer became aware of the shortfall or part after a taxation statement by the taxpayer that was taken into account in working out the taxpayer's statement tax for the year and failed to tell the Commissioner about it, in writing, within a reasonable time of becoming so aware;

(iii) if the additional tax is payable under section 226G , 226H or 226J - the taxpayer was liable to pay additional tax under any of those sections in respect of an earlier year of income;

(iv) if the additional tax is payable because the taxpayer, in a taxation statement, treated a law as applying in relation to a matter or scheme in a particular way so that section 226K or 226L applied - the taxpayer was liable to pay additional tax under that section in respect of an earlier year of income in respect of which the taxpayer treated that law as applying in relation to that matter or a similar matter or that scheme or a similar scheme in that way;

the taxpayer is liable to pay, by way of penalty, further additional tax equal to 20% of the amount of the additional tax.
