Notifications for vacant residential land tax and the absentee owner surcharge are due by 15 January 2024. If you made a notification last year, you only need to make a new one if your circumstances have changed. 

Vacant residential land tax

You must notify us online if you own a property in inner and middle Melbourne that was vacant for more than 6 months in 2023.

Vacant residential land tax is changing from the 2025 tax year.

Absentee owner surcharge

An absentee owner surcharge applies to Victorian land owned by an absentee individual, corporation or trust. If you are an absentee owner, you must notify us via our absentee owner notification portal.
