TAXATION LAW ASSIGNMENT-

Question 1: Hilary is a well-known mountain climber. The Daily Terror newspaper offers her $10,000 for her life story, if she will write it. Without the assistance of a ghost writer, she writes a story and assigns all her right, title and interest in the copyright for $10,000 to the Daily Terror. The story is published and she is paid. She has never written a story before. She also sells the manuscript to the Mitchell Library for $5,000 and several photographs that she took while mountain climbing for which she receives $2,000.

Requirement: Discuss whether or not the three payments are income from personal exertion. Would your answer differ if she wrote the story for her own satisfaction and only decided to sell it later?

Question 2: Your client is a parent who lent $40,000 to her son to provide a short-term housing loan. The agreement is that the son will repay $50,000 at the end of five years.

Reconsider this question in light of the following facts. The loan was made to the son without any formal agreement and without any security provided for the sum lent. In addition, the client (the mother) has informed you that she told her son that he need not pay interest. However, the son repaid the full amount after two years and included in his payment an additional amount which was equal to 5% pa on the amount borrowed. Only one cheque was presented for the total amount.

Requirement: Discuss the effect on the assessable income of the parent.
