This case concerned the imposition of land tax on Crown land leased by the taxpayer from the Port of Melbourne Corporation. In applying s79 of the Land Tax Act 2005, the Supreme Court delivered its judgment on 27 November 2008 in favour of the taxpayer finding that, even though it was a lease of Crown land, it was not a lease “from” the Crown as the Port of Melbourne Corporation did not represent the Crown.

Read the judgment.
