Land tax assessment notices

The front page of a land tax assessment notice (View large version)

Land tax assessment notices generally begin issuing from August each year, though delays can occur due to a change of land ownership or value.

You will receive an assessment if the non-exempt land that you own in Queensland at midnight on 30 June is:

  • $600,000 or more—if you are an individual who mainly resides in Australia
  • $350,000 or more—if you are a company, trustee or absentee.

Your assessment will be calculated based on valuations issued by the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy.

Learn more about the annual land valuations.

You should contact us if your assessment has any errors, such as:

  • land that you did not own at 30 June is included
  • land that you owned at 30 June is excluded
  • the new value of land that was revalued is not shown
  • exemptions/sub-divider discounts are applied incorrectly.

In some cases, the property address for your land may differ from its actual street address. This is because other government agencies and authorities may have a different address on their records. A reassessment of your land tax will not be needed as long as the property ID and property description shown on the assessment are correct.

If you otherwise believe an incorrect decision was made about your assessment, you can object.
