"need submit" a typo of "need to submit"?

Post by steve » Tue Aug 04, 2020 5:16 am

Hi there,

I'd like to know if "need submit" as in "you will need submit the documents marked xxx" is acceptable or simply a typo of "need to submit". Here are some examples:

"If you intend to occupy the building where works have taken place, you’ll need submit an Application for Occupancy Permit Form (BA9) to ensure that the completed building is suitable for occupation. " (https://www.stirling.wa.gov.au/planning ... -to-submit)

"Drivers need submit the GST portion of your Uber fares to the ATO in addition to the tax you pay for the income you earn as a driver." (https://www.etax.com.au/uber-tax-guide- ... r-drivers/)

Thanks in advance for your help!

Unless this is some kind of Australian usage that I'm unaware of, "need submit" is not correct. It should be "need to submit".
