The taxpayers have lodged a notice of appeal to the Full Federal Court against the decision of Siopis J in Albrecht & Ors v FCT [2013] FCA 1248. In a test case funded by the ATO, the Federal Court had upheld the constitutional validity of superannuation contributions surcharge tax assessments issued to commissioned officers of the WA police force (save for the Police Commissioner himself).
