Lodging an objection

You can lodge an objection online or by post

An objection only applies to one property. If you want to object to multiple properties, you must lodge separate objections for each.

To lodge an objection online, use our objection portal

To lodge by post, you must complete our objection form. We include this form as part of our information kit, which you can get by:

The information kit includes an objection form and important information that you should read before completing this form:

You should supply all relevant information

To help us thoroughly review your land value or property information, you should tell us:

  • why you think it is wrong
  • any concerns you have about your land value or property information
  • anything you think might affect your land value. 

To learn about the best information you can send us to support your objection, see our brochure: Your guide to the Valuer General’s review process.

When we receive your objection, we will check it to ensure you have provided all the information we need, and contact you if you have not.

You must object within 60 days

You have 60 days to lodge an objection. The deadline is either:

  • on the front of your Notice of Valuation
  • 60 days from the issue date on your land tax assessment.

We can sometimes accept late objections if you have good reason. If the deadline has passed, you must tell us why your objection is late and give us supporting information. 

Good reasons include:

  • not receiving your Notice or land tax assessment, or receiving them late
  • not owning the property when we issued the Notice of Valuation
  • waiting for information from another government authority
  • being unable to get your supporting information by the deadline – but you will need to show us that you requested it before this.

We will also consider late objections if, when you received your Notice or assessment, you:

  • were ill or injured
  • had a death, serious illness or injury in your family
  • were overseas or away from home for an extended period.
