Ownership and income tax: Specific types of property: shares: example 5: joint names - siblings
A and B, brother and sister, hold shares in company Y in their joint names. A provided 30% of the purchase price, and B 70%. They claim to be taxed 50/50.
The 50/50 rule (TSEM9814) does not apply because the property is not held in the joint names of husband and wife or civil partners.
The general principles apply. A resulting trust arises such that A is taxable on 30% of the dividends and B on 70%.
