Application needs to be made annually and applications can be lodged at the Council from August.
The size of any rebate is determined by the level of your household income and the level of your rates. Dependent children still at home will also affect the level of rebate.
To find out whether you qualify for a rebate you may phone the Council or use the calculator at www.ratesrebates.govt.nz
As an example, a superannuitant living solely on the pension who receives a rates invoice for $1800 may qualify to have that rebated by almost a third.
An application form is available from the Council or may be downloaded from www.ratesrebates.govt.nz . The Council will post out a form on request.
