If a payment arrangement is approved

  • interest at the prescribed rate will be charged and
  • a memorial may be lodged to prevent dealings on the land.

You will incur late payment penalties if you apply for a payment arrangement after the due date for payment.

If you don't make a payment under a payment arrangement, the arrangement will be revoked and all of the outstanding tax (and interest) becomes due.

The payment arrangements ruling outlines the Commissioner’s discretion to approve arrangements for extending the time to pay tax and making payment of outstanding tax by instalments.

To complete the application, you may need to provide

  • assessment advice
  • invoice or notice issued by the Office of State Revenue

  • a projection of cash flow on a month-by-month basis that covers the period of the instalment proposal

In certain circumstances, we may waive the payment of tax.

What happens if I don't pay?

Show more
If you don't pay or you underpay your land tax assessment, interest and penalty tax may be imposed.

If you have chosen to pay by instalments and don't pay the required amount by the due date, you can't continue to pay by instalments. The full assessed amount plus any penalty tax imposed for late payment must be paid by the due date shown on the Notice of Revocation of Instalment Arrangement.

See information about unintended underpayments and late payments.

We may also

  • issue you with a summons
  • lodge a memorial against the land title prohibiting transfer of the land and
  • in certain circumstances, arrange for the sale of the land to recover any unpaid taxes.

If legal action is required, the cost of the action is added to the amount payable.

If a memorial is lodged against the land, the Commissioner may withdraw the memorial or provide consent to deal on the land if the whole amount has not been paid.
