Submitting your Local Property Tax Return

Claiming an LPT exemption or deferral of payment

Claiming an LPT exemption

You are still required to submit your Local Property Tax (LPT) Return even if your property is eligible for an exemption for LPT.

You can claim an exemption in:

  • the ‘Property Details’ section of the LPT Return screen (Step 1), if you are submitting your LPT Return online
  • Part 3 of the form, if you are submitting your LPT Return using the paper Form LPT1.

For more information on qualifying criteria and validity period for each LPT exemption, see Local Property Tax Exemptions for 2022 to 2025.

Claiming a deferral of LPT payment

You are still required to submit your LPT Return even if you intend to claim a full or partial deferral of your LPT payment.

You can claim a full or partial deferral:

  • when you provide your payment arrangements for your LPT charge for 2022, if you are submitting your LPT Return online
  • in Part 7 of the form, if you are submitting your LPT Return using the paper Form LPT1.

For more information on the deferral types and eligibility criteria, see Deferral of Local Property Tax payments.
