Eligible motorists who spend more than $375 a year on tolls can claim a 40% rebate.
You can claim:
- once a quarter
- up to $750 for the financial year
- up to one year after the financial year ends (the rebate owing will accrue)
|Toll spend dates||Closing date for claims|
|1 July 2022 to 30 June 2023||30 June 2024|
|1 July 2023 to 30 June 2024||30 June 2025|
Before you claim for the first time
- You need to link your toll account to your MyServiceNSW Account. This provides you with access to Toll Tracker where you can check your toll spend and see when you're able to claim toll relief.
- Make sure your contact and vehicle details are up to date with your toll provider.
If you’re a sole trader with a personal and/or business toll account, you may also be eligible for the sole trader toll relief rebate.
To claim, you need to:
- be a NSW resident
- spend $375 or more on eligible tolls in a financial year
- have an active NSW personal toll account (E-Toll or Transurban Linkt) – if you've moved from interstate, check with your toll provider that you now have a NSW personal account suitable for toll relief
- have already paid for the tolls
- have an active NSW toll provider account (not suspended or closed)
- have accrued the tolls on a vehicle that's privately registered in NSW, and is below 2794kgs TARE weight
- have travelled on an eligible NSW toll road
- claim within one year of the financial year end in which you paid the tolls
- have not already received:
- a rebate in the quarter for which you're claiming
- the maximum rebate in the financial year for which you're claiming.
Note: You must accumulate the eligible toll spend on one personal toll account at a time. If you have multiple tag or tagless products on the one account, the toll spend for all eligible vehicles on that account will count towards the rebate.
For full details, see the Terms and Conditions.
