Rate Concessions/State Government Concessions

State Government Concessions

From 1 July 2015, the State Government elected to replace the concession on Council rates with the “Cost of Living Concession” provided directly to those eligible. This payment may be used for any purpose, including offsetting Council rates.

The eligibility for a concession on charges for Council Community Waste Water Schemes (CWMS) or council provided water remains unchanged. Should you be eligible for a state government funded concession on CWMS or council provided water this will be paid directly to you by the Department for Communities and Social Inclusion (DCSI) and is no longer provided via your rates notice.

To check eligibility contact the DCSI Concessions Hotline 1800 307 758 or at www.sa.gov.au/concessions.

Postponement of Rates - Seniors

Ratepayers who hold or who are eligible to hold a State Seniors Card are able to apply to Council to postpone payment of rates on their principal place of residence.

Postponed rates remain as a charge on the land and are not required to be repaid until the property is sold or disposed of.  Phone 8569 0100 or email postbox@mid-murray.sa.gov.au for further information.
