If I lodge this form do I still have to pay the tax?
Yes. You will be notified in writing when your assessment has been updated. Until then, you are required to pay the full amount by the due date or a provisional amount negotiated with the SRO.
What if my assessment is not amended?
There is no legislative right of review of appeal in respect of a decision not to amend your land tax assessment. However, you may wish to object to your assessment by using the Land Tax Objection Form (Form 2B). Please visit the SRO website sro.vic.gov.au for an explanation of the difference between land tax amendments and objections or to access the Land Tax Objection Form (Form 2B).
Penalty for errors and ommissions
You must notify the SRO of errors or omissions in your assessment within 60 days of the issue date of your assessment if you:
- Own land that is not included in your assessment
- Are receiving an exemption for land included in your assessment that is not or is no longer eligible for the exemption.
If you do not notify the Commissioner of such errors or omissions in the assessment, you may be liable to penalty tax.
For the purposes of this section the date means:
- If you are notifying the Commissioner of land specified as exempt in the assessment that is not exempt – the date the land ceased to be exempt, or
- If you are notifying the Commissioner of land owned but not included in the assessment – the date of possession of that land.
