Are you a Pensioner?
If you are the holder of a current Centrelink Pensioner Concession Card or a Department of Veteran’s Affairs Gold Card, and reside at your property permanently, you may be eligible for Pensioner Rates Remissions.
Council grants a remission of 30% of the differential general rates (excluding interest and other charges) up to a maximum of $240.00 per year if eligible.
In addition to the remission allowed by Council, the State Government will grant a remission which is administered by Council. A further 20% remission is allowed to approved pensioners up to a maximum of $200 per annum on rates and charges plus an additional subsidy on the State Emergency Management Levy.
For more information see Council’s ‘Rate Rebate and Remission Policy’.
To apply, complete the online form or download a copy of Council’s Application for Pensioner Rates Remissions below and return it to Council. In order to confirm your eligibility for Pensioner Rates Remissions, a copy of your Pensioner Concession Card or Gold Card must be attached to the form.
