Thailand: Extension of Land & Buildings Tax Payments


On 28 August 2020, the Governor issued a formal announcement that the owners of land and buildings that are subject to Thailand’s updated property tax rules will be granted an additional two month extension to the 31st October for payment of the land and buildings tax.

This joint initiative is between the Ministry of Finance and the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration as part of the measures to provide support for the COVID-19 crisis.

Normally, taxpayers are required to pay property taxes by the end of April each year in accordance with the tax assessments issued by the authorities. Taxpayers who fail to pay the assessed amount of taxes by the due payment deadline are subject to penalties of up to 40 percent of the amount of the tax payable.

For those taxpayers who wish to make payments in installments, the deadlines have been extended as follows:

 No.  Previous Deadline  New Deadline
 1st installment  31 August 2020  31 October 2020
 2nd installment  30 September 2020  30 November 2020
 3rd installment  31 October 2020  31 December 2020

For the ease of making payments and in support of social distancing guidelines, these tax payments can be made via an online bank payment system or at one of the Krungthai Bank branches, as well as at any of the 50 district offices in Bangkok.
As always, if you need any additional information or have any questions, please do feel free to contact us.
