Land—tax (Question No 1347)

Mr Coe asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 11 May 2018:

Can the Treasurer provide a breakdown of the revenue generated by land tax from (a) part and (b) full quarter payments, broken down by (i) suburb, and (ii) type of dwelling, such as houses, units or commercial properties, for each financial year from 2007-08 to 2017-18 to date.

Mr Barr: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(a) The general principle for land tax is a full quarter's liability arises if a property is rented on the first day of a quarter, regardless of how many days in that quarter the property is rented. From 1 July 2018, the rented test will be replaced with a test of whether the property is the owner's principal place of residence or not and will apply based on the status of the property on the first day of each quarter.

The only circumstance where a part quarter land tax liability arises is when a property starts or stops being rateable during the quarter, i.e. a lease is created or abolished part way through a quarter and the property is also rented during that quarter. This occurs very rarely. These provisions will be repealed from 1 July 2018.

The ACT Revenue Office IT system is unable to provide data on part quarter payments.

(b) See answer to Question on Notice 1346.

Can the Treasurer provide a breakdown of the total number of land tax payers broken down by (a) suburb and (b) type of dwelling, such as houses, units or commercial properties, for each financial year from 2007-08 to 2017-18 to date.

Mr Barr: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

Table 1: Commercial properties (Note: Land Tax for commercial properties was abolished from 2012-13 onwards)
