Time is running out if you want to save on your rates

TIME is running out for residents to receive the 10% discount on their rates, with the final discount period ending this Friday.

Residents who pay their rates in full by close of business this Friday will receive a 10 percent discount on the 'general rate' amount due.

Maranoa Regional Council has reminded people that this discount will only apply if full payment is received by Council on or before the due date.

Rate notices include the general rate and service charges which are levied on properties to finance the management and maintenance of Council services and infrastructure.

All rates and charges are set at Council's annual budget meeting and notices are issued by Council twice a year.

If you have not received your rates notice, please call Council on 1300 007 662 as soon as possible.

Payment Methods

In person - cash, cheque, money order, EFTPOS, Visa or MasterCard at a Council Customer Customer Service Centre or Australia Post Office

By phone - by calling 13 18 16

Online via BPay - through your financial institution.

Mail - To avoid missing out on your discount due to possible delays in the mail system, we suggest paying over the counter at any post office (Postbillpay service) instead of posting your payment.
