Land tax issues for deceased estates: new rules effective 1 July 2020

Today South Australian Land Tax does not impose any specific requirements on the executor or administrator of a deceased estate. On 1 July that will change. If you are advising the LPR of an estate holding land in South Australia you will need to advise on documentation they are required to file with the Commissioner of State Revenue both during and after the administration.

Julie Van der Velde, Founder and Principal of VdV Legal will present this practical lecture on how the new land tax rules operate in respect of trusts and estates and the specific issues you, as adviser must manage in the course of an administration. We also consider changes which mean land tax will become a consideration in developing some estate plans.
