To calculate an estimate of your rates for the coming 2017/18 rating year you will need to know your new land value. This should be mailed to you by the NSW Valuer General during April 2017. To access your land values online, click on the following link to the NSW Valuer General's website and follow the instructions. Access Your Land Values
You will also need the land value from your annual rate notice that you received in July 2016. Your rates notice will also show other charges such as your garbage bin size and stormwater, if applicable.
There will be three amounts calculated, the first is your current rates amount, the second using only the Rate Peg of 1.5% and the third using the Special Rate Variation (SRV) of 13.0%. The Special Rate Variation will only be used if the application receives approval from the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART).
