Rates Rebate Scheme

The Rates Rebate Scheme benefits ratepayers who are on lower incomes and pay rates for the home in which they live.

The amount of rate rebate depends on a combination of your income, the amount of rates you are charged and the number of dependents you have.

For example, the maximum rates rebate available to a legal ratepayer for the property that was their home on 1 July 2016 is now $610.00. Different levels of rates rebates remain available on household earnings from a minimum of $24,470 per annum.

If you are not sure if you qualify for a rates rebate please contact our Customer Services Team on (07) 878 0800 to discuss.

If homeowners meet additional criteria, they can apply for the new rates rebate from 1 July 2016 for the 2016/17 rating year.
