This video contains instructions for landlords to claim coronavirus land tax relief on a 2020 land tax assessment only.
Given there are now additional coronavirus relief measures available for the 2021 land tax year, when you enter My Land Tax to claim relief, it will default to the 2021 year.
Applications for 2020 land tax relief closed on 31 March 2021.
We may accept a late application if we are satisfied that you could not reasonably have applied before the closing date for reasons beyond your control. Late applications must be lodged by 30 September 2021.
2021 land tax relief
While applications are open for 2021 relief for residential landlords in My Land Tax, they are not yet open for commercial landlords of properties with a single tenancy, and owner occupiers.
Landlords of properties with multiple tenancies
Landlords of properties with multiple tenancies must apply for land tax relief via our Coronavirus land tax relief - Multiple tenancy properties SmartForm (you cannot apply via My Land Tax). You will also need to download and complete a Multiple Tenancy Schedule to accompany your application.
Visit the coronavirus relief measures page for detailed information on all relief measures.
The Victorian Government has announced land tax relief for commercial and residential landlords in response to coronavirus.
For more information on eligibility criteria, and the evidence you need to support your application, visit sro.vic.gov.au/coronavirus.
Eligible landlords can apply for the land tax reduction through My Land Tax, an online application for managing your land tax.
You can log in, or create a new registration for My Land Tax at sro.vic.gov.au/mylandtax.
Select 'COVID-19 land tax relief for eligible land owners' on the dashboard.
For the property you want to claim land tax relief, select 'Manage property' and from the drop-down box, select 'I want to apply for COVID-19 land tax relief’.
Answer all questions in relation to your application and upload documentary evidence, as required, for your claim.
If you have more than one property for which you want to claim coronavirus land tax relief, you need to repeat these steps for each property. In other words, you cannot claim for all affected properties via one application.
Once you have submitted your application via My Land Tax, and any further eligibility conditions are settled, we will review it.
Before finalising your application, we may need to contact you for more information and await any related information that we need. You can track your application’s progress from within My Land Tax.
If your application is allowed, we will automatically defer payment of any outstanding land tax from your 2020 assessment up to 31 March 2021.
