25-65 Local government election expenses
Section 25-65 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 applies to the 2006-07 income year and later income years, in relation to expenditure whenever incurred. In relation to expenditure incurred in the 2005-06 income year or an earlier income year, it applies as if:
(a) it had applied to all income years before the 2006-07 income year; and
(b) an allowable deduction for the expenditure under section 74A of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 had been a deduction for the expenditure under section 25-65 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997.
Note: This section also has the result that, to the extent that a recoupment of the expenditure has been included in your assessable income by former subsections 74A(4) and (5) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936, the expenditure will be disregarded in applying the $1,000 per election deduction limit: see subsection 25-65(2) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997.
