Mr Wood asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 29 November 2000:
In each of the last two years in which property revaluations have occurred:
(1) How many appeals were lodged; and
(1) How many of these resulted in a variation to the assessed valuation.
Mr Humphries: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
� The total number of objections to unimproved land values lodged with the ACT Revenue Office following the 1999 general revaluation of land was 126. Of these, 39 objections were confirmed and 87 objections were reduced. In addition, 7 lessees appealed to the ACT Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) for the objection decision to be reviewed. Of these, 5 appeals were upheld in full or in part, and 1 appeal was dismissed. There is still 1 matter awaiting to be heard by the AAT.
� During the current 2000 general revaluation, the ACT Revenue Office has received a total of 190 objections to unimproved land values. Of these, 120 objections have so far been completed, resulting in 91 objections being confirmed and 29 objections being reduced. To date, only 1 lessee has appealed to the AAT for the objection decision to be reviewed and this matter is awaiting to be heard by the AAT.
