All registered car park owners and operators should receive a pre-populated annual return from us each November.

Use your annual return to declare the number of parking spaces you own or operate and to claim any exemptions or concessions. If you did not receive an annual return, contact us.

  1. Review your annual return

    While the annual return we send you will be pre-populated with your relevant details, it is important that you check the information to ensure its accuracy. If any of your details are incorrect, there is a section in the form where amendments can be made.

    Refer to the explanatory notes for guidance.

  2. Complete your annual return

    Use black or blue pen to complete the annual return we send you.

    Even if your car park situation has not changed in the past year, we require annual confirmation of the total spaces that existed as leviable parking spaces in the relevant calendar year.

    If you have changed your details or are claiming a new exemption or concession, you should attach the relevant completed form(s) to your annual return.

  3. Lodge your return

    Your completed annual return must be lodged by 21 January each year by email or mail.


    Send the return and any supporting documents by email to with the subject line 'Congestion levy annual return'.


    Mail the return and supporting documents to:

    State Revenue Office
    GPO Box 1641
    Melbourne VIC 3001

Next Steps

Levy assessments are mailed to private car park owners and public car park operators in mid-March. You can pay in full or in equal, quarterly instalments (21 April, 21 July, 21 October and 21 January).

The levy is based on the use of parking spaces in the preceding calendar year. For example, the 2021 levy assessment is determined on use during the 2020 calendar year.
