You may be eligible for a concession from Council or from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) if you hold a concession card.
In addition to holding one of the concession cards below, you must also:

- have your name on the rates notice
- make sure the name and address on your rates notice matches that on your concession card.

If your concession is approved, you do not need to reapply each year. We will check with DHHS annually to find out if you are still eligible for your concession. If you are no longer eligible, we will contact you to advise you that the concession has been removed.
Single Farm Enterprise exemption
Where multiple parcels of farm land are used to operate a single farming enterprise, a person may only be required to pay the fixed charge/municipal only charge once by applying for the single farming enterprise exemption.
To apply, a person must submit an application to the Council/s where the relevant properties are located. You must notify Council/s if the circumstances relating to your application change, as this may affect your eligibility for the exemption.
