NOTICE OF WITHDRAWAL
This Ruling issued to advise of a change in Australian Taxation Office policy that enabled self-employed taxpayers and investors to claim a deduction for subscriptions paid to the Taxpayers' Association under subsection 51(1) or subsection 73(2) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936. Subsection 73(2) has not been included in the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997.
This Ruling also advises that 'the cost of income tax appeals and advice relating to objections are not allowable as income tax deductions'. Changes to section 69 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 resulted in such deductions becoming allowable as of 1 July 1989.
Commissioner of Taxation
