You may object to the valuation referred to on your Rates Notice by writing served personally or by post to the Valuer-General within 60 days after the date of service of the notice. But note:
a) if you have previously received a notice or notices under the Local Government Act 1999 referring to the valuation and informing you of a 60-day objection period, the objection period is 60 days after service of the first such notice;
b) this 60-day objection period may be extended by the Valuer-General where it can be shown there is a reasonable cause;
c) you may not object to the valuation if the Valuer-General has already considered an objection by you to that valuation.
A written objection to valuation must set out the grounds for objection. Objections can be submitted via an online form by following the Property Values link at http://www.landservices.sa.gov.au/ or forwarded to the State Valuation Office, GPO Box 1354, Adelaide SA 5001.
