Rates Rebate Scheme

We administer a rate rebate scheme which helps low income ratepayers with their rates account for their homes. The amount you could be entitled to, depends on a combination of your income, the amount of rates you are charged and the number of dependants you have.

The maximum rates rebate available to a ratepayer for their home on 1 July 2022 is $700

Application for the 2022/23 rating year close 30 June 2023. You cannot apply for previous year rebates.
