Check your eligibility for a rates rebate!
If you're a residential ratepayer on a low income, you may be eligible for a maximum $750 partial rebate on your rates. Central government sets the criteria and rebate amounts. If you meet the criteria, you can apply for a rebate on your rates bill for the year from 1 July 2023 to 30 June 2024. You must return your application to us by 30 June 2024.
Rates rebate calculator
Use the calculator on Govt.nz to see if you're eligible for a rebate and what you might get as a rebate.
If you're eligible, once you receive your rates bill, complete the application form on Govt.nz. You'll need to provide proof of income with your application. The form has to be completed and returned back to us before 30 June 2024.
If you're successful, we'll deduct the amount of your rebate from your rates bill. If you've already paid your rates in full, we'll contact you about your rebate.
