Rates are what keeps the Coromandel operating - rates pay for most of the facilities and services that we provide on behalf of the district.
Our rates instalment dates are 15 October, 15 February and 15 May. We send out the rates notices in September, January and April. This is to avoid a rates bill just before Christmas. (NOTE: the date from which a late-payment penalty will be applied for the 15 February 2023 installment is being pushed out from 22 February 2023 to 15 March 2023 due to the weather-related obstacles to delivering rates notices and making payments)
You can opt to receive your rates notices by email. Send your written request to email@example.com. The request must include your assessment number, property address and the email address you would like registered for email notifications.
Rates provisions February 2023
Properties that have been deemed uninhabitable (red stickered) as a result of Cyclone Gabrielle in February 2023 are being granted a rates remission. Usually, we ask homeowners to apply for this. But in the case of this cyclone, we are automatically granting a rates remission during the period people’s properties are officially marked as uninhabitable.
In addition, we are extending the payment date for the current rates payments for all ratepayers, because of the weather-related obstacles to delivering rates notices and the difficulty for people to find ways to make payments with power and road disruptions. The date from which a late-payment penalty will be applied for this instalment is being pushed out from 22 February 2023 to 15 March 2023.
