What is Stamp Duty?

Stamp duty is a state government tax levied on home buyers and it varies depending on the state or territory.

Generally, it’s 3-4% of the property value, but it’s best to use our Stamp Duty Calculator for an estimate of what you can expect to pay. Below, you’ll find an overview of stamp duty for each state and territory:

$440,001 to $550k = $18,370, plus 6% of the dutiable value over $440k.
$550,001 to $960k = $28,070, plus 6% of the dutiable value over $550k.

$80,001 to $300k = $1,290, plus $3.50 for every $100 over $80k$300,001 to $1m = $8,990, plus $4.50 for every $100 over $300k.

If you're a first home buyer, you can choose between a lump sum stamp duty payment or an annual tax that is based on your property's land value. There are conditions and eligibility criteria, which you can find here.

$75k to $540k = $1,050, plus $3.50 for every $100 over $75k.$540k to $1m = $17,325, plus $4.50 for every $100 over $540k.

$100,001 to $250k = $2,090, plus $3.80 for every $100 over $100k.
$250,001 to $500k = $7,790, plus $4.75 for every $100 over $250k.

$250k to $300k = $8,955, plus $4.75 for every $100 over $250k.$300k to $500k = $11,330, plus $5 for every $100 over $300k.

$200k to $375k = $5,935, plus $4 for every $100 over $200k.$375k to $725k = $12,935, plus $4.25 for every $100 over $375k.

Stamp duty is determined by a formula in these territories, so you’ll need to use the calculators on the NT Government and ACT Revenue Office websites to determine approximate stamp duty.
