Landcare tax benefits

​​​​​To support the efforts of Australians protecting our rural landscape, the Australian Government provides tax benefits. You can claim a deduction in the year you incur capital expenditure on a landcare operation for land in Australia.

More detailed information on these tax benefits can be found on the website for the Australian Taxation Office website – Landcare Operations.
