Going, going, gone. Applications for the NSW Bushfire Duty Relief Scheme have closed.
In March 2020 the NSW Government announced relief for home buyers who lost their homes in the then recent bushfires.
The Bushfire Duty Relief Scheme offered an exemption, reduction or refund from/of duty for NSW residents whose homes were deemed no longer habitable as a result of the 2019/2020 NSW bushfires and who chose to purchase an alternative property instead of rebuilding.
The application period was effective for 2 years, from 3 March 2022. Applications for the Scheme closed on 3 March 2022.
