Income Tax (Transitional Provisions) Act 1997
Despite subsection 393-10(2) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 , if:
(a) no part of a farm management deposit has been repaid before a particular time; and
(b) the deposit was made with an FMD provider as a result of a request to which section 25B of the Loan (Income Equalization Deposits) Act 1976 , as in force on 21 February 2005, applied;
the unrecouped FMD deduction in respect of the deposit at that time is equal to the amount of the unrecouped deduction (within the meaning of the former subsection 159GA(3) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1963 ) in respect of the deposit immediately before it ceased to be a deposit under the Loan (Income Equalization Deposits) Act 1976 .
This means that the unrecouped deduction relating to the deposit under the Loan (Income Equalization Deposits) Act 1976 continues to apply (by becoming an unrecouped FMD deduction) when the deposit is transferred to an FMD provider as a farm management deposit. The Loan (Income Equalization Deposits) Act 1976 was repealed on 22 February 2005.
