INCOME TAX ASSESSMENT ACT 1997

CHAPTER 1 - INTRODUCTION AND CORE PROVISIONS  

PART 1-3 - CORE PROVISIONS  

Division 6 - Assessable income and exempt income  

Guide to Division 6  

Operative provisions

SECTION 6-15  What is not assessable income  

 ITAA 36

6-15(1)  

If an amount is not *ordinary income, and is not *statutory income, it is not assessable income (so you do not have to pay income tax on it).

6-15(2)  

If an amount is *exempt income, it is not assessable income.

Note:

If an amount is exempt income, there are other consequences besides it being exempt from income tax. For example:

· the amount may be taken into account in working out the amount of a tax loss (see section 36-10);
· 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).

6-15(3)
