Property Transfer Duties

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​D​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​uty (previously known as stamp duty) is a taxation charged by the Tasmanian State Government under the Duties Act 2001 when an interest in dutiable property is acquired, for example by buying a property. 

Duty is payable within three months of the date of the dutiable transaction (usually the date of settlement) and is payable by the transferee (the purchaser).​​

​​Transactions subject to duty​ may include transfers of real estate (including gifts and inheritances), sales of business, trusts over dutiable property, easements and covenants and acquisition of shareholders' interests in dutiable property.
