The Administrative Appeals Tribunal Orders have been handed down, in the three cases involving taxation of veteran invalidity benefits.
In all three cases, it was decided that Class A and B Invalidity Benefits paid under DFRDB and MSBS, should have been:
- a superannuation benefit
- a superannuation lump sum and
- a disability superannuation benefit
And Class A or B pension payments received are required to be treated in accordance with s 307-145 Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 (Cth).
