The Victorian Government today announced further tax relief measures for Victorians as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
The measures include:
- A 25% waiver of 2020 congestion levy liabilities, with the due date for paying the balance of 2020 congestion levy liabilities extended until 31 March 2021.
- A full waiver of 2021 Vacant Residential Land Tax (VRLT) liabilities that would ordinarily apply to residential properties in Melbourne’s inner and middle suburbs that are vacant for more than six months in 2020. With travel restrictions in place and property inspections currently restricted, many properties that would otherwise be occupied are vacant.
Further information will be available soon on our coronavirus page, which details all coronavirus relief measures we are administering.
