Objections and reviews
You have the right to lodge an objection when you are dissatisfied with a tax assessment or certain decisions of the Chief Commissioner of State Revenue.
If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of your objection you have the right to request an independent external review through the legal system.
The Objections and Reviews Factsheet provides information you should be aware of when you lodge an objection. It includes:
the circumstances where you can lodge an objection
how to lodge your objection
finding out the result of your objection.
You should read the Objections and Reviews Factsheet prior to lodging your objection.
Land tax objections
As part of our commitment to delivering quality service we would like to ensure that lodging an objection is the best way to resolve your matter. There are other avenues available that can often achieve the same result such as updating your details online or sending an email or a letter.
Using one of these avenues still leaves you with the option to object if you’re not satisfied with the result.
Please answer a few simple questions to determine the best way to resolve your concern:
Your objection must be in writing. The grounds for objection should be stated in full and in detail. You should use the objection form(s) available for the tax base/grant you are objecting to. Using the correct form will allow us to quickly identify and consider your objection. You may also outline your objection in a letter or email.
The Objections and Reviews Factsheet provides information about your rights to request an external review by the Administrative Decisions Tribunal (ADT) or the Supreme Court. Please refer to the factsheet for details about time limits and how to request a review.
You can request an external review only after you have lodged an objection with the Chief Commissioner of State Revenue and you are dissatisfied with the outcome of your objection. For information about the review process you should contact the registrars of the ADT or the Supreme Court.
