Notifications for vacant residential land tax and the absentee owner surcharge are due by 15 January 2020. If you made a notification last year, you only need to make a new one if your circumstances have changed. 

Vacant residential land tax

If you own a property in one of 16 council areas that was unoccupied for six months or more in 2019, you must notify us via our vacant residential land tax portal.

Absentee owner surcharge

An absentee owner surcharge applies to Victorian land owned by an absentee individual, corporation or trust. If you are an absentee owner, you must notify us via our absentee owner notification portal.
