Rates are based on the combination of two variables plus the municipal charge:
- the rate in the dollar – set by Council each year
- the valuation – the Capital Improved Value of your property
- municipal charge – the same set amount for every ratepayer in the municipality
The example below is for a residential property that has been valued by the Valuer-General's office at $750,000, including waste services management charge, municipal charge and no pensioner rebate applicable.
$750,000 x $0.00276226 + $179.75 + $20 = $2,271.45* total rates payable
*Please note there are additional Fire Service property levy charges applicable.You can find out more on our ‘how your rates are calculated’ page.
