INCOME TAX ASSESSMENT ACT 1997

CHAPTER 1 - INTRODUCTION AND CORE PROVISIONS  

PART 1-2 - A GUIDE TO THIS ACT  

Division 2 - How to use this Act  

Subdivision 2-B - How the Act is arranged  

SECTION 2-5   2-5   The pyramid  


This Act is arranged in a way that reflects the principle of moving from the general case to the particular.

In this respect, the conceptual structure of the Act is something like a pyramid. The pyramid shape illustrates the way the income tax law is organised, moving down from the central or core provisions at the top of the pyramid, to general rules of wide application and then to the more specialised topics.
