    (4) Where a taxpayer and an annuitant have, by virtue of subsection 160.2(1) or 160.2(2), become jointly and severally liable in respect of part or all of a liability of the annuitant under this Act, the following rules apply:

    • (a) a payment by the taxpayer on account of the taxpayer’s liability shall to the extent thereof discharge the joint liability; but

    • (b) a payment by the annuitant on account of the annuitant’s liability only discharges the taxpayer’s liability to the extent that the payment operates to reduce the annuitant’s liability to an amount less than the amount in respect of which the taxpayer was, by subsection 160.2(1) or 160.2(2), as the case may be, made jointly and severally liable.
