Product description

Understanding Taxation Law 2024 is a comprehensive introduction for all those seeking to gain a sense not only of how Australian taxation works but also where new developments fit into the system. Through digestible extracts from cases, with fact summaries, key passages from Australian Taxation Office rulings, and contextualised discussion of legislative provisions, the text supports learning and enables the reader to identify the important principles of taxation law.

The book concentrates on the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 (Cth) and the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 (Cth), and on the jurisprudence interpreting those Acts and associated Acts. Case summaries and legislative extracts, problem-solving activities and worked examples, as well as flowcharts, diagrams and tables, provide a highly accessible learning framework. The text is supported by interactive online learning activities and resources.
