What has been the increase in taxation revenue from those properties affected by AUV threshold increases.

Mr Quinlan: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

The number of residential properties with a 2004 AUV below $50,000 is 8,508.

The revenue foregone on land taxable residential properties with a 2004 AUV less than $50,000 is $486,359.

The table below compares the 03/04 and 04/05 land tax AUV thresholds:

Residential Properties

Commercial Properties

AUV threshold value 03/04

AUV threshold value 04/05

AUV threshold value 03/04

AUV threshold value 04/05

-

up to $50,000

-

up to $100,000

$50,001 to $125,000

up to $100,000

up to $125,000

$100,001 to $200,000

$125,001 to $225,000

$100,001 to $200,000

$125,001 to $225,000

$200,001 and over

$225,001 and over

$200,001 and over

$225,001 and over

The number of land taxable properties affected by the AUV threshold from $100,001 to $125,000 is 3379. The number of land taxable properties affected by the increase in threshold from $200,001 to $225,000 is 849.

The rise in AUV thresholds reduces the amount of tax payable at any given property value. Therefore there has not been any increased taxation revenue from the threshold changes. In fact, it has reduced the tax payable at any given property value.
