Notice of Withdrawal

Taxation Determination TD 93/69 is withdrawn with effect from today.

1. This Determination advises that police officers are entitled to a deduction for the cost of light meals provided to informants but not for the cost of main meals and liquor as the law specifically denies a deduction for these entertainment type expenses.

2. The Determination is being withdrawn as:

it refers to legislative provisions which were made inoperative by the Tax Law Improvement Act 1997 and repealed by the Tax Laws Amendment (Repeal of Inoperative Provisions) Act 2006; and
the deductibility of entertainment expenses are more comprehensively addressed in Taxation Ruling TR 97/17.
