Payroll Tax Rebate Scheme


As part of the 2017-18 State Budget, effective from 1 July 2017, the Government announced the introduction of a rebate for employers that pay payroll tax and employ eligible apprentices, trainees and youth employees between 1 July 2017 and 30 June 2019.

The maximum rebate payable will be the payroll tax levied for wages paid to eligible employees, or the total payroll tax paid, whichever is less.

Important: The rebate can only be paid after the payroll tax applicable for the claim period has been paid.

For more information, please read the Fact sheet or Frequently Asked Questions.

How to claim the rebate

Registered payroll tax taxpayers in Tasmania can register for the rebate by completing the Registration Form.

A claim form will be forwarded to successful registrants for the Scheme.

Employers yet to register for payroll tax in Tasmania will first need to register for payroll tax. Once notification of registration has been received, the employer can then register for the rebate scheme.
