NSW First Home Buyer Choice scheme

The NSW Government has introduced the First Home Buyer Choice scheme. This will allow NSW first home buyers a choice between paying stamp duty or a smaller annual property tax.

General applications to the scheme open on 16 January 2023, but the scheme may apply where a contract of purchase is signed on or after 11 November 2022. Full eligibility requirements are available here.

Revenue NSW have developed a video and a fact sheet on the scheme, as well as a dedicated website with more resources.

A calculator is also available which compares the estimated property tax and stamp duty for those that choose to opt-in.
