Taxation of Deceased Estates for Estate Practitioners

About the book

A practical easy reference guide for Estate Practitioners on the taxation issues encountered during the administration of a Deceased Estate and the subsequent management of Testamentary Trusts. Estate taxation can be a complex area of taxation law that is unfortunately not widely understood by many tax agents, it is therefore critical that legal practitioners advising on Estate administration matters have the ability to identify important taxation issues in the process.

This book provides the answer to key questions such as the tax responsibilities of executors and when a tax return is required. It addresses a number of fundamental estate taxation issues such as capital gains tax, superannuation proceeds and the concepts of present entitlement.

"There are areas of income tax law that seem to be in a world of their own. One such area is the taxation of deceased estates, where idiosyncratic provisions abound. As a result, when a publication in this area comes along that is practical, easy to read and well structured, estate practitioners (be they accountants, lawyers or financial advisors) suddenly have a useful resource available to them. Ian Raspin’s “Deceased Estate Taxation for Estate Practitioners” is a welcome addition to the references available to those practitioners."
