Complaints and objections

The State Revenue Office Taxpayer Charter sets out:

  • the standards of service you have a right to expect from us; and
  • your rights, responsibilities and obligations as a payer of state tax.

We give the assurance that issues raised by taxpayers will be handled with equity and fairness. If you believe this has not happened, you are encouraged to follow our complaints process, set out below:

  • ensure you have met your obligations under the Taxpayer Charter;
  • make an effort to resolve the issue with the tax officer dealing with your case;
  • should you find it difficult to raise the issue with the tax officer, or you are unhappy with their response, raise the issue with their manager; and
  • if the issue is not resolved to your satisfaction, send a written complaint to:
