Rates rebate calculator

Use the calculator to work out what you might get. It could be up to $655.

You need the following information:

  • the total rates you will pay for the period 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2021 (the current rating year)
  • number of dependants living with you
  • your total household income before tax for the period 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020 (the previous tax year).


Between 1 July 2020 and 30 June 2021. The yearly total is on the bill from your local council. If you get a separate bill from your regional council, add that in too.

A dependant is someone who usually lives with you. They're either an adult on a benefit, or a child. Your partner is not a dependant.

Approximate income between 1 April 2019 and 31 March 2020.
