Pensioner duty concession
The Pensioner Duty Concession Scheme (PDCS) is an ACT Government initiative, administered by the ACT Revenue Office. The PDCS assists eligible pensioners who move to accommodation more suited to their needs (for example, moving from a house to a townhouse) by charging duty at a concessional rate.
The eligibility criteria under the Pensioner Duty Concession Scheme vary depending on the date the transaction to purchase the property was entered into.
