The taxpayers in Burton v FC of T 2019 ATC ¶20-709, [2019] FCAFC 14 have applied to the High Court for special leave to appeal from the decision of the Full Federal Court. CCH has reported that the special leave application is scheduled to be heard on Friday, 14 February 2020. It is unclear whether the High Court will allow the appeal but there was enough doubt in the Full Federal Courts judgement to make it likely that the High Court will hear the case.
