Independent Valuation Appeal Committees meet regularly to discuss appeals to ensure that all are dealt with in accordance with the statutory timetable. However, experience of previous appeals suggests that very few of the appeals lodged will actually be heard by Committees. The vast majority of cases which we handle will be resolved in discussion with the Assessor.
There will be a Citation to hearing in relation to each appeal and this will give a minimum of 105 days notice of the place and time of the hearing. Appellants and their agents are required to provide certain legal information to one another during the processs.
