Are Legal Fees tax deductible?

Tuesday, April 19, 2011
An interesting question and relevant to me personally at this point in time.  As usual the answer to the question varies depending on the facts.  Tax is like that - always grey areas.  Which is why it pays to have a good advisor, a really good advisor, and even better if you have one who knows how the ATO works due to experience working for such.  Anyway, back to the question.  It depends on what the case is about.  If the case is about defending an issue which is to do with your business or income, it can be deemed to be on 'revenue' account and tax deductible.  However, if the case is about non income related issues such as a claim for personal harassment or defamation or personal damages due to a firm's harassment then the fees will be on 'capital' account and not tax deductible.  Good news however, is that if on 'capital' account - the huge winnings for damages will be also on capital account and not taxable.

Your data is quite useful.

If people commenting would like to achieve links then they
should at least show the decency to give a themed and
insightful comment. All comment spam will do is maybe damage
your SEO attempts and generates worthless links.
The best way to behave is to befriend other bloggers who
have blogs of a similar subject matter and hopefully generate genuine targeted traffic by making a detailed response.

I hope more people will take note before commenting after
me, Heres hoping.

I really do hope that you are going to be elaborating a
little more on this theme. I was hoping for a bit more information.

If commentors plan to get backlinks then they must at the very least have the intelligence to write a structured and thorough response.
All comment spam will do is hurt your backlinking efforts and also
creates useless backlinks. The only way to behave is to befriend other bloggers who
have blogs of similar niche and hopefully generate totally
targeted traffic by posting a well thought out response.
Hopefully people will read this before commenting below me, Thanks.

I have to admit, I am more angered by the "generic commenter" than
I am by the more obvious spammer. You might ask why, Because at least the obvious spammer is completely open
and honest with their spamming! We can spot who they are.
The generic commenter is a cheat and also a charlatan You can probably spot that I have very
strong opinions toward these type of charlatans

Wisdom doesn't necessarily come with age. Sometimes age just shows up all by itself.

The one phrase you can use is that success has a thousand fathers,
