The South Australian government’s budget for 2021 includes a build-to-rent land tax discount and land tax measures.

The proposal for a 50% land tax discount would be available for new build-to-rent projects. The discount would reduce the land value for eligible projects for land tax purposes by 50% to the 2039-40 land tax year, and would apply when construction commences from 1 July 2021.

Regarding the land tax reforms introduced from July 2020, there would be further tax rate and threshold changes effective 1 July 2022.
