Notice of Withdrawal
1. Taxation Determination TD 93/82 explains that the disposal of an asset due to an adverse change to a taxpayer's financial circumstances is not an 'involuntary disposal' for the purposes of the roll-over in section 160ZZK of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 (ITAA 1936).
2. Section 160ZZK of the ITAA 1936 was rewritten as Subdivision 124-B of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 (ITAA 1997). Subsection 124-70(1) of the ITAA 1997 outlines the events that will give rise to a roll-over under Subdivision 124-B of the ITAA 1997.
