Payment of your Land Tax Assessment can be made in full as per the Total Amount Due on your notice or by quarterly instalments. Part payments will not be accepted.

If the instalment option is chosen, failure to meet any instalment will result in the unpaid remainder of the full annual amount becoming immediately due and payable. Penalty tax and interest may also be applied.

  • What happens if I do not pay my land tax?

    If you cannot make your full payment or your quarterly instalment payment by the due date on your Land Tax Assessment, the full annual amount will become immediately due and payable.

    A final notice will be issued to you. Penalty tax an interest may be added.

    If the debt still remains outstanding after the due date on the final notice, the matter will be referred to debt recovery to pursue payment and/or commence legal action. In addition, penalty tax, interest and fees may be applied to unpaid amounts.

    Ultimately, a property may be sold for non-payment of land tax, much the same as unpaid council rates.

    How are penalties and interest calculated in cases of late payment?

    A flat penalty tax of 75% of the unpaid land tax can legally be charged where you have deliberately avoided paying land tax. A flat 25% penalty tax can be charged in other situations of late or non-payment.

    The Commissioner of State Taxation may exercise discretion to reduce the 25% penalty tax to 5% penalty tax on the outstanding property land tax amount if the full outstanding amount is paid by the due date.

    Interest may also legally be charged on unpaid tax on a daily basis from the due date until the date the land tax is paid.
