Applications for help paying rates encouraged from low-income earners
Applications for the 2016/2017 rates rebates and water rates remissions are now open.
Group Manager Corporate Services Wayne Maxwell says now is the time for people to be thinking about getting their applications in, as applications close 30 June 2017.
“We know paying rates is tough for some members of our community. Low income homeowners and tenants could be eligible for some help with your property or water rates in our 2016/17 funding round.”
“There are a range of rebates and remissions available, including the Department of Internal Affairs rates rebate subsidy of up to $610 for low income ratepayers, and a Council water rates remission of up to $120 for large families with low incomes, who have high water costs.”
“If you think you could be eligible, check out our website or give us a call to talk through your options.”
