Appealing your rates or charges

If you do not agree with the rates and/or charges applied to your property, you can appeal to the County Court for a review within 60 days of the issue date of your rates notice (in accordance with Section 184 of the Local Government Act 1989) if:

  • the land is not rateable land (eg. it is used for educational or religious purposes)
  • the rate and/or charge was calculated incorrectly
  • the person levied was not liable to be rated (eg. a charity).
