• Private ruling - select main subject

    The ‘Private ruling – select main subject’ screen asks you to indicate the subject that your private ruling question is about.

    To select the main subject of your private ruling

    On the ‘Private ruling – main subject information’ screen:

    • choose a subject from the drop down list – if the subject of your private ruling is not listed, select ‘Subject not covered above’, and
    • select the Next button.

    You will be taken to the ‘Private ruling – required information’ screen.

    A private ruling question can be about more than one issue or subject. To select a main subject choose the subject category that best describes the main issue in your private ruling. You can select only one main subject.

    The main subject information will determine the area in the Tax Office that will process your application.

    These screens help determine basic requirements only. The officer processing your objection will advise whether your application is valid.
