The Victorian Government has announced land tax relief for eligible owners of land, including landlords who have provided rent relief to tenants impacted by the coronavirus pandemic as part of the Government's Support to Landlords and Tenants package.
Landlords who provide tenants impacted by the coronavirus pandemic with rent relief between 1 January 2021 and 28 March 2021, and owner-occupiers of commercial properties, may be eligible for a 25% reduction on the property’s 2021 land tax. 2021 land tax relief is not available for vacant properties.
Eligible applicants can also defer paying their remaining 2021 land tax, as well as any land tax previously deferred as part of the 2020 relief, up to 30 November 2021.
The closing date for 2021 land tax relief applications was 30 June 2021.
If, for reasons outside your control, you could not apply before the closing date, we may be able to accept a late application. Late applications must be lodged by 31 December 2021.
