Waikato Regional Council's rates are invoiced once a year. Your rates invoice sets out how much is owed including any balances carried forward from last year. Your rate assessment notice shows how the regional rates for your property are calculated and which regional rates are applied to your property.
Your name and address information is part of the rating record obtained under the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002, and is protected under this Act, the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 and the Privacy Act 1993.
We may use your name and address as required by these and other acts administered by council. We would also like to use your name and address to inform you of council activities that may affect you.
If you do not wish your name and address to be used by council to inform you of the activities that affect you, please contact us or call Waikato Regional Council's freephone 0800 800 401.
