Newly released data from the Australian Taxation Office shows that total property manager fees and commissions dropped by more than $100 million in some states in 2011.

According to the figures, investor expenses on property management fees in Victoria dropped almost $150 million from $502,625,831 in 2009-2010 to just $354,258,661 in 2010-2011.

South Australia also witnessed investors spending less on property managers with almost $120 million less claimed.

South Australia property management fees expenditure dropped from $207,796,922 to $89,013,776 in 2011.

Total fees in Tasmania dropped by almost 40 per cent in 2011 from $37,045,547 down to $22,389,098.

However, investors in all other states claimed expenditure on property management fees was up, either through additional investment properties or property managers increasing fees.

Queensland witnessed the biggest increase, jumping from $323,988,006 in 2010 to $536,724,444 in 2011, an increase of 65.7 per cent.
