Latrobe Council




Property rates are Council's principle revenue source. Valuations provided by the Valuer-General are used to calculate the rates on each property. For further information on Rates and frequently asked questions, please click here.

Collection of Council's rates is essential to the funding of services and capital works. To encourage this, Council offers a 2% discount on current rates where rates are paid in full by the first instalment due date.

You may choose to pay your rates in full on or before the first instalment date, or by four instalments.

 Instalment 1 - 8th August 2014
Instalment 2 - 31st October, 2014
Instalment 3 - 31st January, 2015
Instalment 4 - 31st March, 2015

Any ratepayers who are experiencing genuine difficulties in meeting these dates can apply for alternative payment arrangements by contacting Council's Rates Officer.

To cater for residents who are away over winter or for those who prefer a paperless society, Council is able to email your rates notice and instalment reminders electronically. This is however an opt in service. 

Should you wish to receive your rates notice electronically, please complete the following form and return to Council   Request to Email Rates Notice(17 kb) Your details will not be provided to any third party.
