$200 Rates Rebate: A little can go a long way

Posted: 9pm 06 Apr 2020

Every little bit counts right now - so make sure you apply for Moreton Bay Regional Council’s $200 rate rebate.

All recipients of the Federal Government’s Coronavirus Supplement are eligible, and all ratepayers will receive an information flyer inside the envelope of your next rates notice.

The rebate will be paid in two $100 instalments over the next two rates notices ($200 in total) for eligible properties, owned by an eligible ratepayer.

Times are tough but Moreton Bay is tougher, that why Council’s $15 million Stimulus Package is so important for this region. Initiatives like the rates rebate are specifically targeted and designed to help people in financial distress get by through the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).
