State Tax Disputes
State taxes catch many people by surprise
Whilst objections relating to federal taxes such as income tax or GST are common, there are also a growing array of state taxes that can catch landowners, property investors and property developers by surprise.
Aptum and its wider team has in-depth knowledge of valuation processes and factors used by the SRO to determine property and land tax assessments.
Our team has extensive experience working with the SRO to resolve a range of issues in land tax disputes, including: high valuations, failure to apply exemptions, incorrect attribution of ownership, and double stamp duty.
Aptum can help you gain certainty on your tax position in relation to your land holdings and any investments, such as property transactions or property developments. We provide strategic, practical advice, so you can make informed decisions about your business and investments.
