Vacant and absentee notifications due, and clearance certificate payment update
SRO news and updates
Notifications due 15 January
Notifications for vacant residential land tax and the absentee owner surcharge are due by 15 January 2019. If you made a notification last year, you only need to make a new one if your circumstances have changed.
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 the SRO via the absentee owner notification portal.
New options for paying the tax listed on land tax clearance certificates have been delayed and will now be available in early 2019. Once the new options are available, certificates will allow you to pay by credit card or BPAY.
