A recent court of appeal decision affects the future conduct of state tax appeals generally, whether they concern stamp duty, land tax or payroll tax in NSW.

The court of appeal has found that where the Chief Commissioner of Tax refuses to give permission to lodge an objection to a decision after the 60-day period allowed in the tax laws, an objection may still be lodged under another part of the law.

For the person in the case, it kept alive his right of objection and appeal for earlier tax years 1997 to 2004 when he had lodged objections against his assessment for land tax after the 60-day period.
