Rates Rebate Aid Available with Distancing in Place


Waitaki ratepayers will be able to bring their Rates rebate applications into the Waitaki District Council for the witnessing of their signature and, if required, help with the completion of their application. Staff will be available to assist both at our Waihemo service centre as well as at Council HQ in Oamaru.  Please bring the relevant paperwork with you, such as proof of income from all sources to the end of March 2020. You will be able to talk to a council representative who may be able to assist with your application

An application form for the 2020 /2021 rates rebates will be posted out to ratepayers at the end of July – when they become available to us.”

If you require an appointment please call our Customer Services team on 03 433 0300 and talk to one of our staff.

It is worth repeating that Council is keen to hear from you if you feel that your current circumstances mean paying your rates will be very difficult. The rebate, if you qualify, is one way to mitigate this problem but we will try to find solutions that work for everyone.
