Are you eligible for a Rates Rebate?

Are you eligible for a Rates Rebate?


Residential ratepayers with a combined income of up to $24,250 may be eligible for a rates rebate of up to $605.

Those earning over the income threshold may still qualify for a lower rebate, depending on their rates amount and number of dependants. The income threshold is increased by $500 for each dependant in the household.

Horowhenua District Council’s Finance Manager Jeff Paulin says that in previous years over 1800 Horowhenua ratepayers have received rebates, but that Council believes many more will be eligible.

“So grab this opportunity and take advantage of the Rates Rebate Scheme. The process is straight-forward and Council staff can meet with you and help you complete your application to ensure it’s processed promptly and payments applied to your rates accounts,” Mr Paulin said.

The only information applicants need to provide is proof of income (before tax) for the tax year ended 31 March 2014, including any interest received, as well as proof of a partner’s income or joint income if living together.

Application forms are available from Horowhenua District Council Service Centres in Levin, as well as at the Foxton and Shannon Libraries, or online at www.ratesrebates.govt.nz

Further information is available on the Rates Rebates page of Council’s website www.horowhenua.govt.nz

To make an appointment to meet with a Council staff member regarding your application, call 06 366 1050 or email your name and phone number to ratesrebates@horowhenua.govt.nz.

Enquiries made after 29 August should be made to 06 366 0999.

Gordon Campbell:
On War Crimes And The Afghan Insurgency

Truly, with friends like former defence Minster Wayne Mapp, the SAS does not need enemies. At the very least, the Hit and Run book has raised the possibility that the New Zealand SAS committed war crimes in the attack they led in Afghnistan upon the villages of Naik and Khak Khuday Dad...

Mapp’s attempted defence of the SAS on RNZ this morning unintentionally indicated that collective punishment was baked into the planning exercise for the raid, and also into how the raid proceeded on the ground. More>>
