Summary: Subdividing land and building investment properties can be a tax minefield when it comes time to sell.

Key take-out: The profit on investment properties can attract capital gains tax or be taxed as business income, depending on the ownership structure. In cases of doubt, the Tax Office recommends investors apply for a private binding ruling.
