Council Tax Support

Someone on a low income can get their council tax bill reduced through the Council Tax Support scheme if they meet all the claiming conditions.

Council Tax Support helps people on low incomes and / or certain welfare benefits to pay their council tax bill. If you think you may be entitled you’ll need to apply to your local council for a reduction.

The amount by which your Council Tax Bill is reduced depends on your income and circumstances.  For working age people, regardless of how low their income is, most will have to pay something towards their bill.

Local councils vary. The minimum payment varies between local councils – between 0% and over 30% of the council tax bill.
