Rates Rebates

The Rates Rebate Scheme was established in 1973 by the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) to provide a rebate to low-income homeowners for their rates. It means you may be eligible for a rebate depending on your circumstances.

Are you eligible?

Although a ratepayer’s income might exceed the income threshold a rates rebate could still be available, depending on the rates amount and number of dependants – see example tables or electronic calculator to see if you could be eligible.

How to apply

To apply to receive a rates rebate view the Rates Rebate Application form.

When applying for the rates rebate you will need:

  • Your Hastings District Council rates notice (Hawke's Bay Regional Council rates may also be included)
  • Details of your income (before tax) for the previous tax year
  • Proof of your partner/joint homeowner’s income if he/she lives with you.

If you are granted a rates rebate, the rebate will be applied to the property.
