How Rates are Calculated

Glenorchy City Council uses a property’s Assessed Annual Value (AAV) as provided by the Valuer General.  If you want to find out more about property valuations, click here.


Council then multiplies a property’s AAV with a cents-in-the-dollar figure determined by Council for each type of rate.


For example a property might have an AAV of 12,000 and Council determines that the general rate for the year will be 6.62 cents in the dollar.  This property would then be charged $794.40 for its General rate (12000 x .0662).

General Rates
This charge covers a variety of services including:

  • roads, footpaths and kerbing
  • parks and gardens
  • planning
