Credit card

When paying by credit card:

  • A card payment fee of 0.54 per cent applies to all credit card transactions (fees are not charged for other payment methods).
  • You need a current Visa or Mastercard.
  • Your State Revenue Office customer number and reference number. Your customer number is found at the top right of your assessment notice while your reference number (the number following 'Ref:') can be found at the bottom of each of the payment methods - see examples below.

When paying by BPAY:

Pay by instalments

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

Refer to your assessment notice to see whether you have access to scheduled instalments or the trial of AutoPay Instalments.

Scheduled Instalments

If the instalments section of your assessment looks like the image below, you have access to our existing system enabling 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 its due date listed on your assessment notice. Once you have made this payment, our system recognises 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.

With AutoPay instalments, payments can be scheduled:

  • Fortnightly,
  • Monthly, or
  • In four equal instalments.

This service is available daily between 6am and 9.30pm Australian Eastern Standard Time.
