Pensioner rate rebate
You may be eligible to receive a rebate on your rates for your principal place of residence if you hold a:
- current Pensioner Concession Card
- DVA Gold Card TPI (Totally and Permanently Incapacitated), or
- DVA Gold Card WW (War Widow).
If you have previously applied for the rebate, the amount will be automatically deducted from your rates notice. There is no need to reapply if your circumstances have not changed.
The eligible maximum rebate is $218.30 for the 2016-17 rating year.
If you are eligible and have not received the rebate complete a Municipal Rates and Charges Concession application form available from the Department of Human Services.
- Email Council Rates the application form with a scanned attachment of your concession card
- Mail the form and copy of concession card to Moreland City Council, Locked Bag 10, Moreland Vic 3058, or
- Bring your concession card and form to a Council Citizens Service Centre.
Council conducts an online verification with Centrelink to confirm your eligibility or ineligibility for the rebate.
The rebate amount appears on the rates notice, under the heading Government Rebate.
If you are no longer eligible to receive the rebate, you should contact Council immediately.
Please note that holders of a Health Care Card are not eligible for the pensioner rate rebate.
