Rates and property

Low-income Victorians can apply for concessions on municipal rates and stamp duty.

This department and other agencies offer a variety of concessions and benefits to eligible cardholders to assist low-income Victorians with housing bills. If you have a relevant concession card, you may be eligible for one of these concessions:

  • Fire services property levy concession - concession cardholders should check their council rates notice to see if they receive a discount on the fire services property levy
  • Municipal rates concession - Victorian home owners with eligible concession cards can claim a deduction on council rates
  • Stamp duty concession - if you are a concession cardholder and you are considering buying property, you could be fully or partially exempt from stamp duty.
