Rebates offered to Isis ratepayers

ISIS pensioners are up for a rates rebate if they apply before the council issues rate notices in February.

Finance portfolio councillor Greg Barnes is encouraging eligible residents to get in early.

“It’s important that new pensioners or those with changed particulars contact us before the rate notices are issued so that we can include their rebate and avoid any confusion, undue worry, or the need for council to issue replacement notices.”

Existing pensioners need not re-apply unless they have changed their address since receiving their last notice.

To be eligible for a pensioner rate rebate, an approved pensioner must:

Hold a Queensland Pensioner Concession Card issued by Centrelink, or a Qld Veterans Affairs Concession Card or a Qld Repatriation Health Card – for all conditions issued by the Department of Veterans Affairs;

Be the owner of the property or life tenant of the property, which is their principal place of residence. (Special conditions apply to life tenants).

New pensioners can contact the council for an application form if they are entitled to a rebate and haven’t previously applied for one, or if they are unsure about their eligibility.

If you are unsure of your eligibility telephone 1300 883 699.

Closing date to lodge completed applications is Friday January 22.
