Having Trouble Paying Your Rates?

HAVING TROUBLE PAYING RATES?

PAYMENT ARRANGEMENTS:

Council is happy to enter into agreements with ratepayers which enable the payment of rates to be spread over a longer period.

Fines and interest are added to any amounts overdue, however, the arrangement prevents legal action and also any legal fees being incurred, providing that the agreement is honoured.

POSTPONEMENT OF RATES FOR SENIORS:

Postponement of rates is offered to holders of a State Seniors Card for their principal place of residence for any amount of rates in excess of $500.00.

This option does not affect the existing entitlement to a State Government concession on council rates.

Applicants are required to have at least 50% equity in their property. Application forms for postponement of rates are available from the Cummins office.

For full details of the terms and conditions of postponement options, please contact the Council office.

RATE PAYMENT OPTIONS

All ratepayers are given the opportunity­ to either: pay rates in full (and if paid by the due date, receive a 2% discount) or pay rates in quarterly instalments.

Notices are sent to ratepayers at least 30 days prior to the due date for payment. Please check due dates carefully.

For all payment options please see the reverse side of your rates notice.
