Hartnell Offers To Settle Tax Office Breeding Case

Friday, 18th December 2009

Former Racing NSW chairman Tony Hartnell "has extended an olive branch to the Tax Office, a move that could lead to an out-of-court settlement for his long-running stoush over a $772,466 tax deduction," reported The Sydney Morning Herald. The newspaper noted the "gesture comes at the 11th hour as the Tax office puts together evidence to support a stronger case against him, in which it will allege his horse-breeding ventures were a sham". The court has heard evidence over 7 days & is due to resume for 4 days from May 5 "if a deal is not reached". Hartnell applied to the court for mediation late last month & was due to meet with Tax Office lawyers yesterday "in an attempt to negotiate a deal". (Apr 7)
