Long-term Lease Land Tax Holiday

The Tasmanian Government is providing up to a three-year land tax holiday for all newly built housing made available for long-term rental.

Land release

Legislation will be introduced as a priority into Parliament this year to fast track zoning changes and the supply of affordable housing.

Changes to the Building Code and Planning System

It’s now easier to build in Tasmania. Reforms in the planning and building area have been made and further reforms are underway. These reforms will provide for faster approvals and more flexible forms of housing, including shop-top development.

Private Rental Incentive

This incentive is to encourage residential property owners to make affordable rental homes available for low-income earners. Owners will receive a financial payment of $10,000 to $13,000 per property, per year, and will also be guaranteed that rent is paid for the term of the lease. Your property will also be managed by an experienced property manager.

Land tax exemption

The Government is providing a one-year land tax exemption for short rentals that are made available for long-term rental.
