Council Tax Support


Council Tax Support could help reduce the amount you need to pay.  The scheme was originally introduced in April 2013 to replace Council Tax Benefit as a result of changes made by Central Government. Previously, 100% of the cost of Council Tax Benefit payments was reimbursed to local authorities – under the new scheme the Government continues to reduce the level of funding provided.

Under the 2018/19 scheme, the minimum payment of Council Tax is 45% - this is the same as 2017/18 scheme.

The scheme is currently split between the following two areas:

• one for pensioners which is a national scheme exempt from the 45% rule
• and a local scheme for working age customers.
