You are taken to have *acquired the *dwelling or your *ownership interest at the income time for its *market value at that time.

118-192(3)  

If your *ownership interest in the *dwelling *passed to you as a beneficiary in a deceased's estate, or you owned it as the trustee of a deceased estate and the *CGT event did not happen within 2 years of the deceased's death, you apply this Subdivision as if:


(a) you had *acquired the interest as an individual and not as a beneficiary or trustee of a deceased estate; and


(b) for applying the formula in section 118-185, your non-main residence days were the number of days in your *ownership period when the dwelling was not the main residence of an individual referred to in item 2, column 3 of the table in section 118-195.

There are special rules for dwellings acquired before 7.30 pm on 20 August 1996: see section 118-195 of the Income Tax (Transitional Provisions) Act 1997.
