HELP! I am in need of some guidance. I have just had a Land Tax bill for over $5000. If I explain briefly my circumstances. We (hubby and I) bought a house in July 2013 which needed total renovating. Renovations took 12 months. We stayed in the house on weekends and holidays and both our children stayed at the house occasionally. We did not live in the house permanently because we both work and live at our jobs, and it is a requirement of my husband to live at his job. This March we purchased another house which needed minor renovation work ie new bathroom, kitchen, decorating, new deck and garden clearance, this house has never been occupied by ourselves or any tenants. The First property we rented out in May this year for 6 months just to help pay the mortgage etc, whilst we were renovating property no. 2. I have paid CT, Water Rates, Gas, Electricity etc for both properties, the only time I have not paid Gas and Electricity for the first property is when we rented the property out from the 1 May ’15 – 30th October. Do I have to pay Land Tax for both properties, and this much?? Any advice greatly appreciated.
