Municipal property valuations are governed by the Valuation of Land Act 1960 and are conducted annually.
Ratepayers have a right to object to the valuation of their property but must lodge their objection within two (2) months of receiving their rates notice.
Objections must be lodged on the prescribed forms, either electronically or manually.
Late objections cannot be considered.
The State Revenue Office (SRO) uses the site value to assess land tax payable.
You can lodge an objection by visiting the online Objections Portal; or by downloading the applicable Valuation Objection form on the right hand side of your screen.
Once received by Council, your objection is referred to the valuer who will give you an opportunity to discuss your objection.
