(iv) if the taxpayer created or produced the property-the amount
equal to so much of the cost of creating or producing the property as would have been allowed as a deduction to the taxpayer if the property had been sold by the taxpayer;

(i) acquired the property within 12 months before the making of the

the application, in relation to the estate of a deceased person, of the provisions of the law relating to the distribution of the estates of persons who died intestate; or

(iii) the amount (if any) paid by the taxpayer for the property; or
(iv) the amount that, assuming that this paragraph and subsection
(15) had not been enacted, would be the value of the gift;
(c) if neither paragraph (a) nor paragraph (b) applies:
(i) if the Commissioner is of the opinion that an amount equal to
the average of the values specified in the valuations given to the Commissioner under subsection (13) in relation to the property fairly represents the value of the property as at the time when the gift was made-the value of the gift is that amount; or
(ii) in any other case-the value of the gift is the amount that
the Commissioner considers was the value of the property as at the time when the gift was made.

"(16) If:
(a) a taxpayer (the 'first taxpayer') owns property jointly with one or more other taxpayers; and
(b) the owners make a gift of the property; and
(c) assuming that:
(i) the property had been owned by the first taxpayer alone; and
(ii) the gift had been made by the first taxpayer;
the gift would have been an allowable deduction under subsection (6), (7) or (8);
the first taxpayer is entitled to an allowable deduction of so much of the amount of the deduction that would have been allowable as mentioned in paragraph (c) as the Commissioner considers reasonable having regard to the interest of the taxpayer in the property.

'previous year's tax amount' means the amount assessed as the tax payable for the year of income before the current year;
'earlier year's tax amount' means the amount assessed as the tax payable for a year of income 2 or more years before the current year.

"Subdivision D-Estimates of current year's tax
Taxpayer may lodge estimates of current year's tax
"221AZO.(1) A taxpayer is entitled to lodge with the Commissioner up to 2 estimates of the tax (if any) that the taxpayer will be liable to pay for the current year.

(b) the tax payable by the taxpayer for the current year, reduced by the following amounts:
(i) credits under subsection 98A (2), Division 18 of Part III or
Division 3A of this Part, or under the Income Tax (International Agreements) Act 1953;
(ii) offsets under section 160AQK.

(ii) the earliest date on which the taxpayer would have had to pay
an instalment for the current year if the estimate had not been lodged; and

current year;
(ii) the due date for the last instalment.
"(4) The Commissioner may remit some or all of the penalty if the Commissioner is satisfied that there are special circumstances that make it fair and reasonable to do so.
"(5) Penalty under this section is to be treated as tax for the purposes of sections 208, 209, 214, 254, 255, 258 and 259.
Refund of excessive instalment on downwards estimate
"221AZQ.(1) If a medium or large taxpayer lodges an estimate after paying an instalment, and the amount paid was more than it would have been if it had been calculated on the basis of the estimate, the Commissioner must refund the difference.
"(2) The refund is to be treated as reducing the amount of the instalment concerned for all purposes of this Act (other than Part IIIAA).
"(3) No refund is payable under this section if the estimate is lodged after the due date for the 3rd instalment.
Liability to pay an additional amount on upwards estimate
"221AZR.(1) If a medium or large taxpayer lodges an estimate after paying an instalment, and the amount paid was less than it would have been if it had been calculated on the basis of the estimate, the taxpayer must pay the difference to the Commissioner at the time of lodging the estimate.
"(2) The taxpayer's additional payment is to be treated as being part of the instalment concerned for all purposes of this Act (other than Part IIIAA).
"(3) This section does not apply if the estimate is lodged after the due date for the 3rd instalment.
"Subdivision E-Miscellaneous
Taxpayer must specify taxable income etc. in return
"221AZS. In its return for the current year, an instalment taxpayer must specify:
(a) its taxable income for the current year; and
(b) the amount (if any) of the tax payable on that taxable income.
Due date for payment of tax
