Retrospective exemption from Duty on certain statutory vesting transactions

The Taxation and Related Legislation (Miscellaneous Amendments) Act 2016 introduced a retrospective exemption from duty (effective 1 July 2001) for certain statutory vesting transactions, including where dutiable property vests as the consequence of the registration or cancellation of a strata plan under the Strata Titles Act 1998.

If you have paid duty as a consequence of the vesting of dutiable property upon the registration or cancellation of a strata plan, a refund of duty may apply.

If you consider you may be entitled to a refund, please email revenuereview@treasury.tas.gov.au and attach a copy of the stamped instrument(s) upon which duty was paid.
