Rates out

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Auck­land ratepay­ers will re­ceive their rates no­tice for the 2013/2014 rat­ing year from Au­gust 1, the sec­ond year of Auck­land’s three-year move to a sin­gle rat­ing sys­tem.

Over time all Auck­land properties of sim­i­lar value and use will be charged a sim­i­lar amount of rates, so ratepay­ers will be charged on a con­sis­tent ba­sis re­gard­less of where they live and work in the re­gion.

Rates pay for things such as pub­lic trans­port, events, parks and other com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties.
