FAQs
When are land tax assessments issued?
Generally land tax assessments are sent to you or your authorised representative between late January and late May each year. You may, however, receive an assessment (including assessments for previous land tax years), outside this timeframe.
Are you liable for payroll tax?
You, or your group of employers, pay this state tax if you pay wages in Victoria and your Australian wages exceed the monthly threshold of $52,083, and the annual threshold of $625,000 as of 1 July 2017. The tax-free annual threshold will increase to $650,000 on 1 July 2018, with a monthly threshold of $54,166.
Are you eligible for the First Home Owner Grant?
If you are buying or building a new home, you may be eligible for the First Home Owner Grant ($10,000) if you signed your contract on or after 1 July 2013. A $20,000 First Home Owner Grant for regional areas may also apply.
