  • Luxury car tax rate and thresholds

    Luxury car tax rate

    Cars with a luxury car tax (LCT) value over the LCT threshold attract an LCT rate of 33%.

    For LCT rates before 3 October 2008, refer to Luxury car tax rate – previous years.

    Luxury car tax thresholds

    The following table lists the LCT thresholds for the relevant financial year – the financial year the car was imported, acquired or sold.

    If you buy a car with a GST-inclusive value above these LCT thresholds, you must pay LCT except in certain circumstances. In general, the LCT value of a car includes the value of any parts, accessories or attachments you supplied, or imported, at the same time as the car.
