For the purposes of item 4.1.5 of the table in subsection 30-45(1) , an event is a disaster to which this subsection applies if the Minister has declared it to be a disaster. The Minister may do so if satisfied that:

(a) must be in writing; and


(b) must specify the day (or the first day) of the event; and


(c) must be published on the internet or by another method determined by the Minister.

30-45A(3)  

The Minister ' s declaration of an event as a disaster is not a legislative instrument.

30-45A(4)  

You can deduct a gift that you make to a public fund covered by item 4.1.5 of the table in subsection 30-45(1) , in relation to a disaster to which subsection (1) of this section applies, only within the 2 years beginning on the day specified in the declaration as the day (or the first day) of the event for which the fund is to provide relief.
