             (1)  There is a limit on the total of the amounts you can deduct for the income year under these provisions:

                     (a)  section 25-50 (which is about payments of pensions, gratuities or retiring allowances) of this Act;

                   (ba)  Division 30 (which is about deductions for gifts or contributions) of this Act;

See Division 36 (which is about tax losses of earlier income years).

                     (c)  the amount you can deduct for the income year under section 393-5 (which provides for deductions for making * farm management deposits).
