Third rates instalment due Thursday 15 March

A reminder that the third rates instalment for the 2017-2018 rating year is due on Thursday 15 March.

Horowhenua District Council offers a range of payment options. Ratepayers can use a credit card or debit card to pay online via Council’s website www.horowhenua.govt.nz, or pay via internet banking direct credit.

Payments can also be made by return post or over the counter at Council's customer service centres at the main office in Levin, and at Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom in Foxton and the Shannon Library. Rates payments can also be made at the Tokomaru Store and any Post Shop.

To help spread the cost, ratepayers are encouraged to set up a direct debit, with payments able to be set up weekly, fortnightly or monthly, as well as quarterly.

For more information, payment options, or to register to have future rates invoices emailed, visit the Rating Information page on Council's website. Otherwise, contact the Rates Team on 06 366 0999 or rates@horowhenua.govt.nz

Residential ratepayers with a household income up to $24,470 may also be eligible for a rates rebate up to $620.

Ratepayers who earned more may still qualify for a rebate, depending on the level of their rates and number of dependants.

Council staff can meet with ratepayers and help them assess their eligibility and also help complete their applications. To make an appointment, phone 06 366 0999 or email ratesrebates@horowhenua.govt.nz.

The only information applicants need to provide is proof of household income (before tax) for the tax year ended 31 March 2017, including any interest received. The rebate is based on total income for that period and the amount of rates for both Horowhenua District Council and Horizons Regional Council.

Further information and application forms are available from www.dia.govt.nz/Services-Rates-Rebate-Scheme-index or from Council’s customer service centres at the main office building in Levin, Te Takeretanga o Kura-hau-pō, Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom and the Shannon Library.
