Income limits for concessions

20 March to 19 September 2018

South Australians who can show that they are on a low income, self-employed or receiving workers compensation payments may be eligible for state government concessions on water and sewerage rates and the Cost of Living Concession.

To be eligible, the applicant's income from all sources must not be more than the income limits shown below. Eligibility for the Cost of Living Concession is based on income limits on 1 July.

The applicant and their spouse or domestic partner must both provide proof of their income - ie evidence from the Australian Taxation Office or copies of wage slips - showing the amount of income that they received in the period for which the concession is sought. A Tax Assessment Notice (TAN) must be provided for every new financial year.
