In May 2001, the State Government announced a new council rate concession to self-funded retirees for the 2001/2002 financial year and thereafter.
Refer to the eligibility criteria for further information.
A self-funded retiree refers to a ratepayer who is a retiree and is not in receipt of a Commonwealth pension or allowance through Centrelink or Department of Veterans Affairs.
If you did not receive a concession on your council rates notice, are a self-funded retiree, and you meet the eligibility criteria, you can obtain an application form from this website or RevenueSA.
Applications should be submitted directly to RevenueSA. If eligible, the first year you receive a council rate concession it will be paid in the form of a cheque issued directly to you by RevenueSA. Your council rates notice will not be re-issued and should still be paid in accordance with the due date shown on the notice.
RevenueSA will then advise your council of your eligibility so that in future years, the concession will appear as a reduction in the calculation of your council rate amount.
If you have moved residence, to transfer the concession to your new principal place of residence, please use the Change of Residence Advice form.
