Land value review

Land value review

The grounds for objection can be found in section 34 of the Valuation of Land Act 1916. A brief summary follows:

  • the values assigned are too high or too low
  • the area, dimensions or description of the land are not correctly stated
  • the apportionment of the valuations is not correct
  • lands which should be included in one valuation have been valued separately
  • lands which should be valued separately have been included in one valuation
  • the person named on the Notice of Valuation is not the lessee or owner of the land
  • concessions/allowances are incorrect.

More information on lodging an objection can be found on the Request a review page.

You have 60 days to lodge an objection. The last date to object is printed on the front of your Notice of Valuation or 60 days from the issue date printed on their land tax assessment.

If you want to lodge an out of date objection you need to provide detailed reasons why your objection is late. We can then decide whether to accept the objection.

Examples of reasons for lateness include:

  • You suffered an unexpected serious illness, injury or health issue.
  • There was a death or unexpected serious illness or injury in your family.
  • You were unexpectedly out of the country or away from home for an extended period when the Notice of Valuation of land tax assessment was issued.
  • Other exceptional and/or unexpected circumstances, however these circumstances need to be well explained.

The Valuer General is not bound to accept an out of date objection for any of the above reasons for late lodgement.
