General Rates Information
The land value of your property is one of the major factors in the determination of the ordinary rate you pay. Your land value is supplied to Council by the State Government (Valuer General's Office) with new values provided every three years. The amount of rates levied is also determined by the rating categorisation of your property.
The Local Government Act states that all rateable land must be categorised into one of four rating categories (Residential, Business, Farmland or Mining) and Council must give notice of this category.
Your rating category is displayed on your rate notice.These categories are purely for rating purposes and are not necessarily related to zoning or location.
When are your Rates due?
The full amount of your rates is due for payment on 30 September. However you may pay this yearly amount by quarterly instalments as shown on your rates notice.
Ratepayers who choose to pay by quarterly instalments are advised that instalments are due as follows:-
1st Instalment due: 31st August
