A new scheme is being introduced by Santiago del Teide Council to assist pensioners and people who have been unemployed for more than one year, with a rebate on their 2009 IBI (rates)

Eligible homeowners have until May 14th to make their claim. The rebate can be up to a maximum of 85 per cent of the amount paid on their primary property, depending on circumstances.

If you think you may be eligible, you can get more information either at the council offices in Santiago del Teide, or at the council sub-office in Playa de la Arena.
