Reading Your Notice

Townsville ratepayers receive their Rate and Utilities Notice in their mailbox or inbox twice a year – in February and August.

The notice features breakdowns of rates, utilities, State Government levies, and eligible concessions.

Council offers a prompt payment discount to the General Rate, and the Nelly Bay Harbour Development Special Rate, upon full payment of all rates and charges, including arrears, by the discount date shown on the Notice.

Council has decided to allow a 5% discount to the payment of differential general rates for rateable land included in differential rating category 1 – Residential Principal Place of Residence to encourage the prompt payment of rates and charges on certain properties.
