What are the Motor Vehicle Stamp Duty rates in Tasmania (TAS)?

Last updated: 3 July 2012

The amount of Motor Vehicle Stamp Duty payable in Tasmania (TAS) is derived from the dutiable value of the car or vehicle.

The dutiable value of a new motor vehicle is the consideration paid for the vehicle, disregarding the value of any trade- ins.

The dutiable value of a used vehicle is the greatest of three options; the consideration paid for the vehicle, the market value of the vehicle at the time the vehicle was acquired or the value of the vehicle at the time of application to register the vehicle.
