RevenueSA Online Land Tax Portal

If you have received your Land Tax Assessment and it shows information that is wrong, please lodge a land tax query through our online form. This will help us manage incoming queries and respond to you as soon as possible.

Updating your information in the RevenueSA Online Land Tax Portal will not automatically amend your Assessment for 2020-21.

If you need help from your representative (for example, your solicitor or accountant) to complete your land holding declaration, we recommend you speak to them first. Your representative can register for RevenueSA Online, verify your Registration ID and complete the declaration on your behalf.

Frequently Asked Questions

re the 2020-21 land tax changes and land holding declaration

Where can I find information on the changes?

Please see the land tax changes page see what changes apply to you.

Back to Top >

Am I going to be taxed more?

Only some property owners will see an increase in their land tax liability. Many will see a reduction in their land tax, and some will not be affected at all.

Those who do see an increase may be eligible to apply for transitional relief. Application details will be available when Notices of Assessment are issued (between October and November 2020).

Please see the land tax changes page see what changes apply to you.

You can also find details about land tax exemptions and how to apply on our land tax exemptions, waivers and relief page.

Land tax calculators are available which you can use to provide you with an estimate of your 2020-21 land tax.

I only own my home and have received a letter, isn’t this exempt?

Generally your principal place of residence is exempt from land tax.

If the site value (unimproved land value) of your home has always been below the tax free threshold ($450 000 for 2020-21) you would not have been liable for land tax and an exemption may not have been applied.

With the introduction from the 2020-21 financial year of new provisions for land held on trust, we need to identify any land that is held on trust. Land held on trust is taxed at a higher rate of land tax when the site value is above the tax free threshold ($25 000 for 2020-21). This is why you have received a letter.

Please see our land tax exemption page for details on the principal place of residence exemption and how to apply.

You are also asked to complete your land holding declaration, indicating that you own the land.

Why have we received two letters for the same ownership?

Letters have been sent to each individual owner (i.e. partners who own land together will each receive a letter).

All owners are being asked to review and confirm their land holdings, which can include land they own individually or with other parties.

Back to Top >

Why have we only received one letter for a joint ownership?

Letters have been sent to each individual owner (i.e. partners who own land together will each receive a letter).

The letters to the joint owners may not have been sent out at the same time, and letters are still being sent to owners. If you have not received a letter by 30 June 2020 please email us at landtaxreform@sa.gov.au.

Why have I received a letter for my apartment? I don't have any land.

While you may not have any physical land, your apartment is built upon land and a site value is determined for each apartment by the Valuer-General. You are seen as an owner of land for land tax purposes, which is why a letter has been sent to you.

Back to Top >

Why have I received a letter for my unit/townhouse etc.?

As the owner of the unit/townhouse etc., you are seen as the owner for land tax purposes, which is why you have received the letter.

A site value is determined by the Valuer-General for each unit/townhouse etc., which is used to assess land tax and if your unit/townhouse is owned under:

  • a strata title, the site value will not include common property (e.g. common driveways); or
  • a community title, the site value will not include common property (e.g. common driveways). The relevant community corporation will be liable for any common land that attracts land tax.

Why have I received a letter for my shack site?

As the holder of a shack site lease, you are seen as the owner for land tax purposes, which is why you have received the letter.

The lessee (holder of the lease) has been recognised as the owner for land tax purposes since 1989. This means your shack site may be assessed along with any other property they own for land tax.

Why is my home included on my land holding declaration? Shouldn’t this be exempt?

No existing exemptions have been removed.

If your land is already exempt from land tax, as your principal place of residence, your exemption will continue and the land will not be liable for land tax. However it will still appear in your land holding declaration.

If one of the properties listed in your land holding declaration is your home and you do not currently have a principal place of residence exemption in place, please see our land tax exemption for details on the principal place of residence exemption and how to apply.

You will still need to complete your land holding declaration.

If one of the properties listed in your land holding declaration is used for the business of primary production and you do not currently have an exemption in place, please see our land tax exemption for details on exemptions and how to apply.
