If you are the property owner, reside at the rateable property and are the holder of a Pensioner Concession card, generally you will be entitled to a rebate on your rates in accordance with Section 575 of the Local Government Act.
If you are eligible for a Pension Rebate you can receive up to a maximum reduction in rates per annum of $425.00 ($250.00 general and waste, $87.50 water and $87.50 sewer).
Owners who become eligible pensioners during the year are entitled to a pro-rata rebate for their rates, calculated on a quarterly basis. Rebates are also reversed on a quarterly basis when owners become ineligible for the rebate.
You will need to complete a Pensioner Application Form and return it in person to Council's Rates Team along with your relevant concession card.
