Rebates are different from concessions

The Tasmanian government has a special website for concessions, at These concessions let you pay less up front for various government services.

Rebates are more like refunds, which will give you money back after you’ve paid for a service, if you are eligible.

There isn’t a single website that collects all of these, but you can use Service Tasmania’s Search bar to get a list of current rebates.
