Rates help

With Lockdown and economic loss, this scheme is likely to be of benefit to more people this year than normal.  The Department of Internal Affairs has had for several years a scheme whereby those on low incomes or get a Working for Families tax credit can have some of the Council Rates (including water rates) rebated.  This takes the form of a credit on the first Rates bill for the next financial year, due in the first week of September

Applications for support close on 30 June 2020.

For more information see DIA rates rebates or water rates remissions, or give the KCDC a call on 0800 486 486 — which is where the application forms need to be lodged.
