Rate Concessions/State Government Concessions
State Government Concessions
The State Government provides a “Cost of Living Concession”, as well as water and sewerage concessions for Council Community Wastewater Management Schemes (CWMS) or council provided water. These payments may be used for any purposes, including offsetting Council rates. To check eligibility contact the ConcessionsSA Hotline 1800 307 758 or go to www.sa.gov.au/concessions
Should you be eligible for a state government funded concession this will be paid directly to you by the Department of Human Services and is not provided via your rates notice.
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.
