You may be eligible for a rebate on your 2017/2018 rates.

The Rates Rebate Scheme is administered by the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA). It provides a subsidy to low-income homeowners on the cost of their rates.

The maximum rebate is $620. The income threshold is $24,790 and is increased by $500 for each dependant in the household.

Homeowners can apply for the rebate from 1 July 2017, for the 2017/18 rating year. The closing date for applications is 30 June 2018.

Rates Rebates forms for 2017/2018 now available at i-SITE. You can also download them from the Department of Internal Affairs website.

Westland District Council will also be holding a rates roadshow throughout Westland in August in various locations around the region where you get help with completing your rates rebate applications and get more information regarding rates in general.
