Council delivers more than 100 services to its residents while Whitehorse continues to have one of the lowest levels of rates in metropolitan Melbourne.
Rates provide approximately 58 per cent of Council's total annual income. This income funds various Council services such as aged and disability, waste and recycling and youth services as well as the maintenance of roads and footpaths, parks and gardens, street lighting, libraries and so on.
Council's rating year starts each year on 1 July and ends 30 June.
The Property and Rates Department coordinates Council's rating and valuation functions. For more information about rates, contact the Rates Department on 9262 6292 or email email@example.com
Annual rate notices are issued by Council in late August each year. Ratepayers can elect to pay their rates in a lump sum or by instalments.
1st instalment: Monday 1 October 2018
2nd instalment: Friday 30 November 2018
3rd instalment: Thursday 28 February 2019
4th instalment: Friday 31 May 2019
Residents and businesses are now able to receive rates notices electronically.
Visit http://whitehorse.ezybill.com.au, enter your assessment number and name from your latest rates notice, plus the email address you want your notice delivered to. You can choose to do the same if you receive a separate invoice for a bin.
Whitehorse offers BPAY View® for its rate notices and bin invoices. BPAY View sends your bills straight to your online bank, so receiving, storing and paying is even simpler.
Register for BPAY View through your online bank today.
Please note that if you have a bin invoice and wish to receive this via BPAY View, you must register this separate to your rate notice, as they have a different reference (assessment) number to the rates assessment number.
