Rates Rebates


Applications for the 2022/2023 rates rebate year from the Department of Internal Affairs are now available. If you need any help, please contact us on 07 868 0200.

Rebates are calculated by the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA), dependent on the amount of your household income and rates payable for the year.

The maximum rebate this year has increased to $700.

You cannot apply for a rebate if:

  • The property is used principally for farming, commercial, industrial or business purposes; or
  • The property is a rental property; or
  • You have already applied for a rebate in the current rating year; or
  • You do not qualify as a legal rate payer

Do you need help applying?

Our Customer Services teams are available to help. You will need to provide proof of income when applying for the rebate - this is for the tax year 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2023.

  • If your only source of income is superannuation, no proof is required. DIA provide this information
  • If you receive interest from your bank or investments, you will need to get a Resident Withholding Tax (RWT) certificate from your bank or investment company
  • Obtain a summary of earnings from Inland Revenue.

Application forms and more information can be found here, or pop into one of our offices.
