Rates rebate calculator

Use the calculator to work out what you might get as a rates rebate.

New calculator design

We’ve simplified the new calculator below and would like to know what you think. After you've tried it out, answer these 4 quick questions.

The old calculator is also available while we collect feedback.

Information you need

You need the following information when you use the calculator:

  • the total rates you will pay for the current rating year — 1 July 2023 to 30 June 2024
  • the number of dependants living with you on 1 July 2023

Enter the total rates you will pay for the current rating year. This could be a combination of local, regional or water rates. Find this information on the bill from your council.

A dependant is a child (under 18 years) or relative who usually lives with you — this includes children in shared care. Your spouse or partner is not a dependant.

This is the total income before tax that you and your spouse/partner or joint homeowners living at the property received in the previous tax year.

Applications close on 30 June each year. Find out how to apply at:
