Land Value and Rates
The Land Court can review decisions that affect the taxes and rates you must pay for your land.
The Valuer-General values land for taxation and rating purposes. If you are unhappy with the valuation of your land, you can object to the Valuer-General. If you are unhappy with the objection decision, you can appeal that decision to the Land Court (Land Valuation Act 2010 (Qld) s 155).

Local authorities decide what rating categories apply to your land. If you are unhappy with the rating category decision about your land, you can appeal that decision to the Land Court. (Local Government Regulation 2012 s 92; City of Brisbane Regulation 2012 s 84)
