Register for land tax

If the total value of your taxable land is greater than the land tax threshold, you will need to register for land tax before 31 March 2018.

If you do not register and fail to lodge a return, we may apply interest and penalties to your assessment based on the Taxation Administration Act 1996.

If you receive a notice of assessment from Revenue NSW before then, you do not need to register.

How do I register for land tax?

To register for land tax, you must complete a registration online using Land tax online.

Before you register, you will need a Client ID and Correspondence ID. Please call 1300 139 816 during business hours to obtain your log-in information or refer to any recent correspondence you may have received from Revenue NSW. 

If you have previously registered for land tax, you do not need to complete another registration. If you would like to update your details, you can find your Client and Correspondence ID on any recent Revenue NSW communication or by calling us.

What do I need to register?

To register for land tax, you need the following information:

  • postal address
  • contact details
  • foreign person status
  • land owned
  • residential use, if you are a foreign person
  • trust details, if the land is held in trust
  • related company details, if your company is part of a related group
  • exemption requests.

If you own land individually and as part of a company, trust or partnership you will need to register for each different ownership name.

If the details you have submitted are incorrect, call us.

How will I know if I have to pay?

Once you register, we will send a notice of assessment based on the information you have provided. This will show if you have a land tax liability. You will then be issued with a yearly assessment if liable.
