Form: General form: Lodging an objection


What is the purpose of this form?

You use this form to lodge an objection to your assessment(s) or certain written decisions made by the SRO. These include written decisions made under the Payroll Tax, First Home Owner Grant, Unclaimed Money and Back to Work Acts.

An objection is a formal challenge to the legal basis of an assessment or written decision. When you object, the onus is on you to prove your case.

There is a different form if you wish to object to the land valuation used in your land tax or vacant residential land tax assessment.

Are there any restrictions on lodging an objection?

You must lodge your objection within 60 days of receiving the notice of assessment or written decision. For First Home Owner Grant or Back to Work matters, you must lodge your objection within 60 days of the date of the decision. In some instances an objection may be accepted out of time.

If you have received a reassessment, you can only object to liabilities that are additional to or greater than those under the previous assessment or reassessment.

You cannot lodge an objection to a compromise assessment or compromise reassessment.
