We're waiting for Trent Morrison-Francis to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear ComSuper,

In complaint letter responses from Commonwealth Superannuation Corporation is advising the following

“ We understand that this may be frustrating for you. Please be assured that we are endeavouring to update our systems as quickly as possible so we can withhold amounts for tax in accordance with the Decision. We hold an exemption for this financial year.”

Please provide a copy of all documents that shows that the Commissioner of Taxation or other authority has provided Commonwealth superannuation with an exception to comply with the Douglas ruling in relation to Military Super for the financial years.

Yours faithfully,

Trent Morrison-Francis

Good afternoon Mr Morrison-Francis,

 

Thanks for your enquiry.

 

To assist with your own understanding, we are not saying that CSC has an
exemption to comply with the [1]Commissioner of Taxation v Douglas [2020]
FCAFC 220 ruling.  

 

As the communication you refer to mentions ‘as directed by the ATO, CSC
will report all applicable DFRDB and MilitarySuper invalidity benefit
payments that were made for the 2020/2021 Financial Year to the ATO as a
lump sum payments’. We would reiterate that CSC has an exemption to
implement the ruling in the 2020/21 financial year while we continue to
update our pension benefit payment system and apply the new tax rates.

 

You can locate more information here: [2]Tax Changes to Invalidity
Pensions (csc.gov.au)

 

We trust this clarifies the matter for you.

 

Best regards,

 

Adam Ivancic
