An "entitled pensioner" means a pensioner who is entitled to a rebate or deferment in accordance with the Rates and Charges (rebates and deferments) Act 1992, holds a pensioner's health benefit card, or rates concession card and resides on the property.
A person who wishes to be registered as an entitled pensioner must make an application to the Council on the prescribed form. Click here for rebate form.
When a person registered as an entitled pensioner ceases to be an entitled pensioner, that person shall give notice thereof to the Council and there upon the registration shall be cancelled.
Objections & Appeals
Appeals can be lodged against the accuracy of Coucil's rating details or the property valuation which are supplied by the Valuer general. The appeal procedures vary but do not negate the normal responsibility to meet payment within the prescribed time limits. In the later case the Valuations of Land Act sets out the manner in which objections may be instituted as regards valuations.
Objections must be lodged within 60 days after the issue of rating or taxing notice. Regardless, rates must be paid, but are subject to adjustment if an objection is successful.
Objection to Valuation forms are available from the Shire Office or by clicking here.
