Requesting an amendment with us is easy and takes just a few minutes.
If you do not lodge your amendment request within 60 days of the issue date of your assessment, penalty tax may apply.
Please note: we do not adjust land tax assessments for property bought, sold or settled during an assessment year. Your solicitor or conveyancer can advise you about any land tax adjustments made on settlement.
Gather supporting evidence
Before you contact us, please have your land tax assessment handy as this contains your customer number, assessment number and assessment year. You may also need:
- Date you moved into your home,
- Certificate of occupancy issue date,
- Property address,
- Date of sale (settlement date),
- Land ID, and
- Lot, plan, volume and folio information
Identify your amendment type
We have two types of amendment which we process differently.
Read the information below to find which category applies to your amendment, then go to Step 3.
- Do you want to claim a principal place of residence (PPR) exemption on your home?
- Have you recently constructed a new home on your vacant land?
- Do you want to update your contact details?
- Is a property you no longer owned as at 31 December 2016 included in your 2017 assessment?
- Do you want to claim a primary production land (PPL) exemption for land outside of greater Melbourne?
- Did you receive more than one individual assessment?
- Do you own land that has not been included in your assessment?
- Have you received an exemption for which you are not eligible?
Request your amendment
If you have a Type A amendment, call us on 13 21 61 and we will handle your request quickly and efficiently over the phone.
If you have a Type B amendment, complete our online form and submit it electronically from wherever you are. This is because your amendment is too complex to be handled over the phone.
We may contact you if we need additional information. We will write and tell you or your authorised representative the outcome of your request for amendment.
If, while you are waiting for our decision on your assessment amendment request, your land tax is due for payment in full or by instalment, you should pay that amount on time. If you do not pay the assessed tax on time, interest may accrue daily on the outstanding amount.
You may be able to pay a provisional amount, but you must contact us to discuss this. If we later amend your land tax assessment based on your request, we will refund any overpaid tax.
