The Rates Rebate Scheme was established in 1973 to provide a subsidy to low-income homeowners on the cost of their rates. The Government is increasing the rates rebate thresholds – more people than ever before will be eligible for the rebate.
Rates Rebates from 1 July 2022:
Maximum rebate $700 (was $665)
Income abatement threshold $28,080 (was $26,510)
Homeowners can apply for a new rebate from 1 July 2022, for the 2022/2023 rating year. The closing date for application is 30 June 2023.
You can download an application form here or pick one up from the Council office on Miranda Street, Stratford.
