  • · you cannot deduct as a general deduction a loss or outgoing incurred in deriving the amount (see Division 8 );
  • · capital gains and losses on assets used solely to produce exempt income are disregarded (see section 118-12 ).

    If an amount is * non-assessable non-exempt income, it is not assessable income .
    Note 1:
