Extensive Definition

Revaluation means a rise of a price of goods or products. This term is specially used as revaluation of a currency, where it means a rise of currency to the relation with a foreign currency in a fixed exchange rate. In floating exchange rate correct term would be appreciation. The antonyme of revaluation is devaluation.
Tax revaluation is the adjustment of the tax level to slow or stop the rise in tax-revenue as the price of a taxable asset increases. This is considered a fiscally conservative measure to encourage spending. One common usage is the tax revaluation of real estate property to counter a rise in land value. This way, even as property values rise (whether due to increased demand, better government services, or inflation), residents and businesses still pay the same amount of money.
