Rates Arrears Penalty Reminder

17 Dec 2020, 9:00 AM

This is a reminder that an arrears penalty of 10% will be added on any unpaid part of any rates assessed before 1 July 2020 that remains unpaid by 5pm, 1 January 2021.

This penalty would usually have been applied in July 2020, however due to the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this penalty has been deferred to January 2021 for this rating year to provide ratepayers with an extended time to pay.

We are here to help and encourage you to contact us if you are having difficulties making payment to discuss options available to assist you with paying your rates.

Rates payments can be made at the Waitomo District Council office, 15 Queen Street Te Kuiti, Te Kuiti i-Site in Rora Street, over the phone, through our website by credit card, or by Internet Banking using your valuation number as reference.

Please contact our friendly Customer Services Team at 0800 932 4357 for further assistance.
