Apply for rebates
Are you a pensioner?
Retired and Disabled persons qualify for special rebates on property rates, according to their total gross monthly household income.
Pensioner’s rebate application forms are available on our website. For queries, phone the Municipality on 028 313 8000 and ask for the Rates and Data Control Office. Alternatively send an email to email@example.com or fax your query to 028 312 1894.
Operating a registered B&B or Guesthouse?
Registered bed and breakfast establishments and guest houses with three to five lettable rooms can apply for the following rebates on property tax based on the difference between business and residential tariffs:
- 3 x lettable rooms: 75%
- 4 x lettable rooms: 50%
- 5 x lettable rooms: 25%
Please note that one and two rooms are no longer rated as ‘Business’ and are therefore no longer eligible for discounts.
The application period starts after the first levy of the new financial year. All applications must be received by the Municipality no later than 30 September.
Guesthouses and B&Bs’ rebate application forms are available on our website
Please send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org or hand in at the nearest Overstrand Municipal Office.
Any queries with regard to the above, can be directed to Overstrand’s Rates and Data Control Office at Tel no (028) 313 8000 or via email to email@example.com.
Are you a farmer?
Agricultural properties will be levied at the “FARMS” tariff, subject to the owner/farmer providing the Municipality with proof that the property is used for bona fide farming purposes.
Bona fide farming means the agricultural land is used primarily for agricultural purposes.
Overstrand Municipality requires a declaration from the owner/farmer as evidence of every farm/portion. Each portion should be on a separate application.
Application forms are available on our website, www.overstrand.gov.za. The completed application form can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or hand it in to your nearest Overstrand Municipal offices.
Feel free to contact us if you have any problems completing the application form.
Any queries regarding the above, can be directed to Overstrand’s Rates and Data Control Office at Tel: 028 313 8000 or via email to email@example.com.
