Submission: Charitable Tax Concessions – Proposed Legislative Amendments

Publication date: 
April 2015

In this submission, ACTCOSS provides a brief commentary on some of the issues the ACT Government should take into account as it develops both the policy intent and operational framework for more clearly defining eligibility for tax exemptions administered by the ACT Government. Further work is needed to ensure any changes to tax exemption status honours the contemporary definition of charitable purpose whilst also addressing risks to the consistency of access to tax concessions by those entities found to meet this definition of charitable purpose.
