If you receive a wagering and betting tax assessment or reassessment notice that you disagree with, you can lodge an objection via our online portal. You must lodge your objection within 60 days of receiving your assessment.
Your reasons for objecting must challenge the legal basis of the assessment and highlight the particular aspects that you consider incorrect. If you are objecting to a reassessment, your objection is limited to liabilities additional to or greater than those liabilities under the previous assessment.
