2021 land tax relief
Depending on the type of landlord you are, you apply in one of two ways:
- Residential and commercial landlords, and commercial owner-occupiers, apply via My Land Tax.
- Landlords of properties with multiple tenancies must apply for land tax relief via our Coronavirus land tax relief - Multiple tenancy properties SmartForm (you cannot apply via My Land Tax). You will also need to download and complete a Multiple Tenancy Schedule to accompany your application.
2020 land tax relief
Applications for 2020 land tax relief closed on 31 March 2021.
We may accept a late application if we are satisfied that you could not reasonably have applied before the closing date for reasons beyond your control. Late applications must be lodged by 30 September 2021.
The Victorian Government has announced land tax relief for commercial and residential landlords and for owner-occupiers of commercial properties in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Eligible landowners can receive a reduction of up to 25% of their 2021 land tax.
For more information on eligibility criteria, and the evidence you need to support your application, visit sro.vic.gov.au/coronavirus
Eligible landlords can apply for land tax relief through My Land Tax, an online application for managing your land tax.
You can log in, or create a new registration for My Land Tax at sro.vic.gov.au/mylandtax
Select ‘Coronavirus land tax relief for eligible land owners' on the dashboard.
From the drop-down box, select 2021 as the assessment year.
For the property you want to claim land tax relief, select 'Manage property' and from the drop-down box, select 'I want to apply for coronavirus land tax relief’.
Answer all questions in relation to your application and upload documentary evidence, as required, for your claim.
If you have more than one property for which you want to claim coronavirus land tax relief, you need to repeat these steps for each property. In other words, you cannot claim for all affected properties via one application.
Once you have submitted your application via My Land Tax, and any further eligibility conditions are settled, we will review it.
Before finalising your application, we may need to contact you for more information and await any related information that we need. You can track your application’s progress from within My Land Tax.
We will advise you of the outcome of your application.
