The Royal Decree on Land and Building Tax Reduction B.E. 2563 was published in Thailand’s Government Gazette on June 10, 2020, and took effect the next day. The decree, intended to provide additional relief to the Thai economy as it begins to recover from the COVID-19 crisis, applies a 90% reduction to land and building tax payments for 2020 which are due to be paid by August 31, 2020 (previously extended from April 30, 2020). Owners of land or buildings are therefore only required to pay 10% of the land and building tax owed for 2020.
