How to claim an exemption

Certain properties are exempt from Local Property Tax (LPT) if they meet the qualifying conditions. Each exemption has specific qualifying criteria and is available for certain periods of time.

When LPT was introduced in 2013, property owners who qualified for an LPT exemption were required to submit a claim by filing an LPT Return.

If you have not claimed an exemption that you think your property is entitled to, you can now claim the exemption by submitting:

  • details of the exemption you are claiming
  • your name
  • the property ID
  • the property address
  • your Personal Public Service Number (PPSN) or Tax Reference Number
    and
  • the relevant form 

to our LPT Branch.
