You can apply to enter a payment plan for up to 12 months if you are having difficulty paying:
- an assessment, such as for land tax or duties, or
- a notice to repay the First Home Owner Grant.
By law, interest is imposed on all late and unpaid amounts at the market rate plus a premium rate of 8 per cent per annum. This continues to apply throughout any payment plan.
You should lodge your completed application on or after, but not before, the due date for paying your assessment. To minimise the amount of interest, you should apply and pay as soon as possible.
