Rates

Rates are a form of property tax. In 2022/23 your rates will contribute to the City of Ballarat’s overall budget spend and will help fund a range of services and projects that are city-shaping and create better long-term outcomes for all in our community.

The critical revenue, combined with $45.8 million in Victorian and Australian Government grants, will support more than 80 services, around 100 projects, $127.3 million in capital works and maintenance of $2 billion worth of assets. Your rates help facilitate so much of what is essential in our everyday lives.

Please contact the City of Ballarat Customer Service team on 5320 5500 for any questions about your rates.
