Flood rates relief

Flood-recovery package

Council is supporting Brisbane residents who are affected by the recent severe weather with a range of rates relief initiatives.

Under our flood recovery package, a $250 rebate is available to eligible residents and businesses on their next rates bill.

If our records show your land was inundated or you can provide other evidence, you can apply for the rebate online. If you are unable to apply online, call Council on 3403 8888. Applications close on 15 June 2022.

Council is providing further support to ratepayers impacted by the severe weather and facing financial difficulties by offering a payment extension of up to 60 days or a payment plan. If you are struggling to pay your rates, call Council on 07 3403 8888.

To also assist those experiencing financial hardship, a $250 JobSeeker Rebate is still available to eligible ratepayers in 2021-22.

If you are a local business, visit Business in Brisbane for further support.
