Frequently Asked Questions  

Are my rates subject to GST?

No, rates and charges that appear on your rate notice are exempt from GST.

When is my rate notice due to be paid?

The rate notice amount is payable by the 'Due Date' shown on the front of the rate notice. Provided Council receives your payment on or before this date, discount will be allowed. If rates and other charges are not paid by the due date, the discount will be forfeited and the total rates will become overdue and subject to interest penalties.

What do I need to apply for pension concessions?

You will need to fill out an application form at Council's Administration Building located at 45 Roderick Street, Ipswich or the Customer Service Centre in Ipswich City Square. Please bring your Queensland Pensioner Concession Card or Gold Veterans' Affairs card and a recent letter from the Department issuing your pension. If you have recently moved, you will also need to re-apply.
