You can apply to enter a payment plan for up to 12 months if you 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 further premium rate of 8 per cent per annum, and this continues to apply throughout any payment plan.

You should lodge your completed application on or after (but not before) the due date for payment of your assessment. To minimise the amount of interest you may need to pay, you should apply and pay as soon as possible.
