RevenueSA conducts investigations to ensure the first home owner grant is paid only to eligible applicants. These investigations include cross checking, data matching and verifying information with extensive third party data from multiple sources within state, territory and federal government and private enterprise.
When considering the amount of penalty to apply in each case, the Commissioner of State Taxation (the "Commissioner") takes into account all relevant circumstances of the case as well as the level of honesty and co-operation of the applicant(s) and/or their agents or representatives when contacted by RevenueSA.
The Commissioner will impose administrative penalties in accordance with the below penalty tables.
* Immediate is taken to mean the first response to RevenueSA after the commencement of an investigation provided it is received within the requested time period.
The Commissioner may commence legal proceedings/prosecutions in cases where an applicant or applicants provide fraudulent or misleading information. Penalties for successful prosecution may result in a maximum custodial penalty of two years, a maximum fine of $20,000 and a criminal conviction.
There are substantial penalties for dishonestly providing incorrect or misleading information in connection with an application for the first home owner benefits. RevenueSA conducts investigations and compliance checks to ensure first home owner grant and additional scheme benefits are only provided to applicants entitled to receive them.
