Pay by instalments

This year, alongside our existing system, we are trialling a new system for paying land tax by instalments.

You need to look at your assessment notice to see whether you have access to the existing system or the new AutoPay Instalments.

Scheduled Instalments

If the instalments section of your assessment looks like the image below, you have access to our existing system which allows you to pay in up to four instalments on predetermined dates. Check your assessment notice for your payment amounts and dates.

Example of a land tax assessment notice highlighting the payment instalments section

To use this system, simply pay the first instalment amount by the instalment due date listed on your assessment notice. Once you have made this payment, our system will recognise that you are paying in instalments and we will send you payment reminders before each instalment is due.

Each instalment payment must be made by the corresponding due date. If payment is late, all outstanding amounts will be due and payable by the ‘full payment’ due date.

AutoPay Instalments

If the instalments section of your assessment looks like the image below, you can set up a payment schedule in AutoPay Instalments.

  • Fortnightly,
