Life Interests Testamentary Trusts


Where an activity you engage in is deemed a hobby, for example a spare-time activity or a pastime pursued for pleasure or recreation, any income generated from that activity is generally excluded from your assessable income of your tax return.

Types of income that are excluded may include:

– Gifts or amounts bequeathed to you
– Prizes that are not related to your business activities
– GST that you have collected
– Money that you have borrowed
– Most payouts from your own personal income protection insurance policy
– Gambling wins
