RevenueSA Online Land Tax Portal

RevenueSA Online allows registered users to:

  • Confirm your land holdings.
  • Advise RevenueSA of land that is held in trust (that is in your ownership as the trustee).
  • Upload evidence of the trust and land ownership.
  • Nominate beneficiaries (if nominating).
  • Confirm your contact details.
  • Advise preferred billing method (email or post).

For corporations, if you are the group head, you can also:

  • Nominate a different corporation to complete the review of the corporate group.
  • Confirm that all related corporations have been included in the corporate group.
  • Add any related corporations that have not been included.
  • Advise where we have included corporations incorrectly.

If you have received your Land Tax Assessment and it shows information that is wrong, please lodge a land tax query through our online form. This will help us manage incoming queries and respond to you as soon as possible.

Updating your information in the RevenueSA Online Land Tax Portal will not automatically amend your Assessment for 2020-21.

If you need help from your representative (for example, your solicitor or accountant) to complete your land holding declaration, we recommend you speak to them first. Your representative can register for RevenueSA Online, verify your Registration ID and complete the declaration on your behalf.

If you have questions, please email us at landtaxreform@sa.gov.au and our team will get back to you.

Frequently Asked Questions

re the 2020-21 land tax changes and land holding declaration

Please see the land tax changes page to see what changes apply to you.

Only some property owners will see an increase in their land tax liability. Many will see a reduction in their land tax, and some will not be affected at all.

Those who do see an increase may be eligible to apply for transitional relief. To apply for this relief from land tax, please see the Transitional land tax relief page.

Please see the land tax changes page to see what changes apply to you.

You can also find details about land tax exemptions and how to apply on our land tax exemptions, waivers and relief page.

Land tax calculators are available which you can use to provide you with an estimate of your land tax.

Generally your principal place of residence is exempt from land tax.

If the site value (unimproved land value) of your home has always been below the tax free threshold ($450,000 for 2020-21) you would not have been liable for land tax and an exemption may not have been applied.

With the introduction from the 2020-21 financial year of new provisions for land held on trust, we need to identify any land that is held on trust. Land held on trust is taxed at a higher rate of land tax when the site value is above the tax free threshold ($25,000 for 2020-21). This is why you have received a letter.

Please see our land tax exemption page for details on the principal place of residence exemption and how to apply.

You are also asked to complete your land holding declaration, indicating that you own the land.

Letters have been sent to each individual owner (that is, partners who own land together will each receive a letter).

All owners are being asked to review and confirm their land holdings, which can include land they own individually or with other parties.

Letters have been sent to each individual owner (that is, partners who own land together will each receive a letter).

While you may not have any physical land, your apartment is built upon land and a site value is determined for each apartment by the Valuer-General. You are seen as an owner of land for land tax purposes, which is why a letter has been sent to you.

As the owner of the unit/townhouse etc., you are seen as the owner for land tax purposes, which is why you have received the letter.

A site value is determined by the Valuer-General for each unit/townhouse etc., which is used to assess land tax and if your unit/townhouse is owned under:

  • a strata title, the site value will not include common property (such as common driveways), or
  • a community title, the site value does not include common property (such as common driveways). The relevant community corporation will be liable for any common land that attracts land tax.

As the holder of a shack site lease, you are seen as the owner for land tax purposes, which is why you have received the letter.

The lessee (holder of the lease) has been recognised as the owner for land tax purposes since 1989. This means your shack site may be assessed along with any other property they own for land tax.
