Why is my home on my Land Tax Assessment?
This video is intended as a guide only. We recommend you seek independent advice on state revenue matters and how they impact you and your circumstances.
Statement of land held shows all of the land you own or partly own in South Australia even if it’s not taxable land.
This could include your home or other exempt land. If the land is exempt, you’ll see a code instead of a dollar value in the site value column. You’ll also see an explanation of the codes at the bottom of your Statement of land held.
If you see a code, it means we have an exemption for your home and land tax isn’t charged on that property. If you see a value against the property it means that the land does not have an exemption or it only receives a partial exemption. Land that only receives a partial exemption will be indicated on your assessment.
If your exemption does not appear on your Land Tax Assessment you can apply online using the Apply for land tax exemption or relief form. Details about eligibility criteria and what you need to apply are available on our website.
Your land tax will need to be reassessed if your home was taxed and shouldn’t have been. Contact us for information.
If your land tax needs to be reassessed because your home was included in your original Land Tax Assessment and should have been exempt from land tax, call us on (08) 8226 3750.
