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.

If you have received a letter or notice of assessment from us with a Client ID and Correspondence ID, go online to complete your registration.

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.

How do I register for land tax?

If you are an individual and have not received a letter or notice of assessment from us with a Client ID or Correspondence ID, your first step is to complete a pre-registration form online. You can do this at any time.

You can also call during business hours.

Once you have completed the pre-registration, we will contact you within two business days with your Client ID and Correspondence ID that you will use to log in to Land tax online to complete your registration. You can also find this information on any recent correspondence from us about land tax.

Complete your registration online using Land tax online.

If you are a company or trust, you will need to call us during business hours, so we can provide you with your Client ID and Correspondence ID to be able to register online.

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 you have previously registered for land tax for each different ownership name, you do not need to complete another registration.

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 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.
