Rates & Levies

Council rates and levies are used to fund many council services including libraries, community centres, replacement and maintenance of roads, pathways, beaches, parks and gardens, the collection and disposal of waste and recyclables, environmental initiatives and other community activities and projects. 

Noosa Shire Council issued rate notices in July 2020 for the billing period 1 July 2020 to 31 December 2020, and will issue in January 2021 for the billing period 1 January 2021 to 30 June 2021.

Council has extended its discount period from 30 days to 60 days to provide some relief for ratepayers during the current tough economic environment caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

A 5% discount on the general rate will be applied to rate payments received by 21 August, with a 2.5% discount on the general rate available for rates paid by 21 September.

Supplementary rate notices may also be issued when there have been adjustments to the rates and charges previously levied.

A full list of rates and charges is available in Council's Revenue Statement [2.6MB].
