Residential and commercial landlords who provide tenants impacted by coronavirus with rent relief and those unable to secure a tenant because of the pandemic may be eligible for a 25% reduction on the property’s 2020 land tax via My Land Tax.
These landlords can also defer payment of their remaining 2020 land tax up to 31 March 2021 via My Land Tax, an online application that enables people to manage their land tax information quickly and easily.
For commercial landlords to be eligible, the property must be rented to a tenant with an annual turnover of up to $50 million who is also eligible for the Commonwealth Government’s JobKeeper Payment.
We have a number of resources to assist you, including step-by-step instructions on claiming land tax relief via My Land Tax and answers to frequently asked questions.
