The Valuer General uses mass valuation techniques which cannot take into account the various individual characteristics of every land lot and often can lead to error.

Understanding how your land is valued will help you provide the best information to support your land tax objection. Land value is the market value of the land only, as if it had sold on 1 July in the valuing year. It does not include your home, or any other structures within the property.

The land value does include any improvements to the land such as drainage and excavation, as well as the physical effect of work involved in any easements, for example pipe work or transmission lines.

You can obtain a copy of your land tax valuation prepared by the Valuer General at: Valuer General land value search Alternatively, you can search via the property address at: Valuer General property address enquiry

Lodging Land Tax Objections
You have 60 days from the date printed on your land tax assessment notice to lodge an objection. If your property is jointly owned or leased, you will need to let the other landholders know that an objection is being lodged.

It is of critical importance that any objection is supported with the best possible evidence and supporting documentation.
