It is time to apply for a rates rebate for the 2020/2021 rating year.
Rebates of up to $655 may be available to eligible residential ratepayers.
To be eligible, you must be:
- Named as a ratepayer for that property, and;
- Living at that property on 1 July 2020.
Rebates are based on total household income for the tax year ending 31 March 2020 and the amount of rates for both Horowhenua District Council and Horizons Regional Council for the 2020/2021 rating year.
To check your entitlement, visit the ‘Getting a rates rebate’ page and enter your details into the rebate calculator.
Alternatively, contact Horowhenua District Council to arrange to meet with a Rates Rebates team member. Home visits can be arranged, if necessary. To make an appointment, phone 06 366 1050 between 10 August and 21 August , or email your name and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org. Calls after 21 August should be made to 06 366 0999.
