If you can't pay by the due date

Contact us before the due date for payment identified on your Notice of Assessment.

Apply online for a payment arrangement.

  • If you log in to the land tax online services portal, your details will be pre-populated in the application form.
  • If you apply after the due date for payment, we will apply late payment penalties.

If a payment arrangement is approved

  • we will charge interest at the prescribed rate and
  • we may lodge a memorial to prevent dealings on the land and
  • we will revoke the arrangement if you don't make a scheduled payment.  If this happens, all 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 paying by instalments.

To complete the application, you may need to provide

  • assessment advice
  • invoice or notice issued by RevenueWA
  • income and expenditure for the taxpayers that are responsible for payment of the liability
  • copies of bank statements, balance sheets, profit and loss statements and any supporting financial documents for the last two years
  • 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.

If you don't pay

If you don't pay or you underpay your land tax assessment, we may impose interest and penalty tax.

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.

In certain circumstances, the Commissioner may withdraw a memorial or provide consent to deal on the land if the whole amount has not been paid.
