Estimate your Land Tax

Our land tax calculators will provide you with an estimate of your land tax.

Please refer to the guidelines for information on the land tax changes.

Which calculator should I use?

There are two calculators available. To determine which calculator to use, you first need to assess if your properties are subject to the general land tax rates or the trust rates. The following questions will guide you to the appropriate calculator.

1. Is the property held in trust?

2. Is the trust liable to the trust rates? (see below)

3.Has RevenueSA been notified of the beneficiaries or unitholders of the trust?

Before you start

You will need to know the total value of all the taxable land. Land tax is calculated on the site value, which you can locate on your last Land Tax Notice of Assessment or by contacting the Office of the Valuer General on 1300 653 346.

Please note: site values may change from year to year. Your 2020-21 land tax liability will be calculated on the site value of your land as at 30 June 2020.

What trusts are not liable to the trust rates?

The trusts that are not liable to the trust rate are:

  • Charitable trusts.
  • Concessional trusts: guardianship order or an administration order.
  • Concessional trusts: disability.
  • Concessional trusts: prescribed by the regulations.
