Stamp duty is a tax that’s payable when you buy a property in Australia. The amount varies from state to state. Different states also have different rules about whether you can pay stamp duty with a credit card.

Some allow payments only from a savings or chequing account, whereas others allow payment through BPAY – and you may be able to do this through your credit card.

Check the payment options for stamp duty on your local state revenue office website. Also read the fine print to see if BPAY payments on your credit card are considered cash advances, as this could attract a higher interest rate.
