Super Slip Up Leads to $70,000 Tax Bill

We have often warned our clients to be beware of exceeding their superannuation caps.  A recent judges decision to uphold a $70,000 tax bill for a director of the bookstore chain Dymocks is a good example of why this is so important.  The Administrative Appeals Tribunal has upheld a 78% tax rate applied against an $89,000 overpayment by Ann Verscheur.  The breach attracts a 31.5% penalty.  But Verschuer is also obliged to pay 46.5% tax due to breaching both the concessional and non-concessional caps.  Add to that the regular 15% tax on super and the total tax bill amounts to 93%.  As you can see, superannuation caps are not to be taken lightly.
