Rates rebate scheme

If your household is on a low income, you might be eligible for subsidised rates through the rates rebate scheme.

The rates rebate scheme provides assistance for ratepayers with low incomes.

In 2016 the government increased the income threshold. More people are now eligible for the rebate.

The income threshold for a rates rebate for the 2016-17 year is $24,470. This amount increases by $500 for each dependant in your household.
