Ap­ply for rates cut

Isis Town and Country - - News -

EL­I­GI­BLE pen­sion­ers in the Isis re­gion are urged to ap­ply for re­duc­tions to their prop­erty rates.

Rate re­duc­tion ap­pli­ca­tions close on Fri­day, July 10.

Bund­aberg Mayor Mal For­man said pen­sion­ers who qual­i­fied for the rates re­mis­sion were en­ti­tled to a State Gov­ern­ment funded 20% re­duc­tion up to a max­i­mum of $200 per year and a fixed coun­cil re­duc­tion of $140 per year.

Cr For­man said pen­sion­ers needed to care­fully check their el­i­gi­bil­ity to re­ceive the avail­able re­mis­sions.

“Any pen­sioner who has pre­vi­ously re­ceived and is still el­i­gi­ble to re­ceive a re­bate need not re-ap­ply un­less their cir­cum­stances have changed,” Cr For­man said.

“Th­ese al­tered cir­cum­stances can in­clude a change to a pen­sioner’s prin­ci­pal place of res­i­dence or a pen­sioner be­com­ing in­el­i­gi­ble to re­ceive a con­ces­sion.

“In th­ese events, the pen­sioner should con­tact coun­cil im­me­di­ately to ad­vise of any change to el­i­gi­bil­ity.”

Pen­sion­ers can check their el­i­gi­bil­ity sta­tus by con­tact­ing coun­cil’s rev­enue sec­tion on 1300 883 699.
