From 1 April 2022, there will be no stamp duty on off-the-plan unit (unit-titled apartments and townhouses) owner occupier purchases up to $600,000. This is a $100,000 increase from the
previous $500,000 property value threshold. See further information at www.revenue.act.gov.au/home-buyer-assistance/owner-occupier-duty-concession.
If you have recently noticed a pending charge on your online banking about a deduction of funds from your account that bears the ACT Revenue Office logo, this is a scam. The ACT Revenue Office does not deduct rental bond payments from accounts.
The message might appear to be legitimate as it contains the website details of ACT Rental Bonds, and the ACT Revenue Office contact number. If you have an unusual or unscheduled pending charge on your account please contact your bank or financial institution as soon as possible. If you have any further queries after contacting your bank or financial institution please contact our office on 02 6207 0028.
