Am I eligible for a rates rebate?
Use the rates rebate calculator to work out if you're eligible and what you might get. It could be up to $655.
You may be eligible for a rates rebate if:
- You are the ratepayer for the property where you live and
- You have lived there since 1 July 2020 and
- Your total pre-tax income is low.
If you have a high income, you may still qualify for a rebate if you have dependants or high rates. Get in touch with us to check.
When do I need to apply by?
As soon as you get your first rates invoice for the new rating year (2020/21) you can apply for a rebate. You can apply up until the end of the rating year, 30 June 2021.
