A *capital gain you make from a *CGT event is reduced if, because of the event, a provision of this Act (outside of this Part) includes an amount (for any income year) in: (a) your assessable income or *exempt income; or (b) if you are a partner in a partnership, the assessable income or exempt income of the partnership. 118-20(1A)
Subsection (1) applies to an amount that, under a provision of this Act (outside of this Part), is included in: (a) your assessable income or *exempt income; or (b) if you are a partner in a partnership, the assessable income or exempt income of the partnership;
in relation to a *CGT asset as if it were so included because of the *CGT event referred to in that subsection if the amount would also be taken into account in working out the amount of a *capital gain you make.
The rule in subsection (1) does not apply to: (a) an amount that is taken to be a dividend under section 159GZZZP of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 (which relates to buy-backs of *shares); or (b) 207-20(1) , 207-35(1) or 207-35(3) of this Act (which relate to franked distributions).
The gain is reduced to zero if it does not exceed: (a) the amount included; or (b) if you are a partner, your share (the partner ' s share ) of the amount included in the assessable income or *exempt income of the partnership (calculated according to your entitlement to share in the partnership net income or loss).
Liz bought some land in 1990, as part of a profit-making scheme. In December 1998 she sells it.
Her profit from the sale is $40,000 and is included in her assessable income under section 6-5 (about ordinary income).
Suppose she made a capital gain from the sale of $30,000. It is reduced to zero because it is does not exceed the amount included.
The gain is reduced by the amount included, or the amount of the partner ' s share, if the gain exceeds that amount.

The gain is reduced to zero if it does not exceed the amount that would have been the *capital gain from the *CGT event if the *capital proceeds from the event were the asset ' s *market value that was taken into account in working out that net previous income.
