Council agrees to withdraw supplementary rates notices

Queanbeyan City Council has agreed to formally withdraw supplementary rates notices issued to around 800 ratepayers.

The resolution means that supplementary rates notices issued for 2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14 are withdrawn and have no legal effect.

Any ratepayer who has paid their supplementary rates notice will receive a refund – for further information read letter below.

Council resolved that any properties that received a refund as part of this situation would not be affected and the refund would remain.

Council apologises for any concern or anguish caused due to the issuing of the supplementary rates notices.

A letter was sent to all affected ratepayers (week starting 13 October) – the letter can be downloaded here.
