Rates rebate deadline fast approaching
Ratepayers who have not yet returned their rates rebate application form for 2016-2017, or who are uncertain about their eligibility to claim a rebate, are asked to contact the council. The deadline for this year’s rate rebate is 30 June 2017 so please get in touch as soon as possible.
The income threshold for this year, based on income from 1 April 2015 to 31 March 2016 is $24,440 with a maximum rebate being $610. You may be eligible with a higher income for a part rebate.
Council staff will be happy to assist anyone who is unclear about whether they are eligible for a rates rebate. You can visit any of the Council Service Centres or phone us on 06 374 4080.
For those who have applied previously, application forms for the next financial year (1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018) will be mailed to you in September 2017.
