Experienced Land Tax Disputes Lawyers in Melbourne & across regional Victoria
Land Tax disputes can be complicated which is why we ensure our Fixed Price Agreements are not.
Land Tax Disputes
With increased property prices and a proliferation of conveyancing, Land tax disputes are becoming more common. We have successfully acted for clients against the State Revenue Office (SRO) where Land Tax arrears have been wrongly adjusted or not adjusted at all and obtained refunds or corrections on adjustments. We have also successfully disputed Land Tax valuations determined by the Commissioner that resulted in a considerable reduction in the land tax valuation apportioned on a single holding basis.
A little more about our Land Tax Disputes Services
Yes absolutely however it is important to note that there are strict timeframes to abide by once you have received your assessment notice.
Land Tax assessments are issued based on the State Revenue Office’s records of your property ownership on 31 December of each calendar year. If you believe you were eligible for an exemption speak to our team to find out your next steps.
The main reason a property can be exempt from Land Tax is that the property has been claimed as the owners principal place of residence.
