Stamp Duty on Investment Property

Stamp duty is a state based tax, charged on the purchase of a new property and is determined by the purchase price of the property.

First home buyers who plan to reside in the property, may be exempt from stamp duty or receive a concession.

Unfortunately there is no concession for property investors or for those upgrading homes, even if it is an investment.

Stamp duty can be a significant upfront cost in the purchase of a property. It also cannot be claimed as an expense. However, it is included as a cost of purchasing a property when calculating capital gains tax.
