£150.00 credit to be allocated for those in receipt of Council Tax Support
In light of the current situation with the Coronavirus outbreak the Government have granted additional funding for working age customers in receipt of Local Council Tax Support.
The Council is awaiting a software upgrade from their suppliers to enable them to credit £150.00 to council tax accounts eligible and in receipt of council tax support. No action is required by customers, credits will be allocated to accounts automatically when the new software is received and installed.
Please note, this will be credited directly to the Council Tax account to reduce the outstanding demand - it will not be transferred to a bank account as a monetary amount. Please be aware of phishing scams trying to get your bank details.
We offer a variety of forms including Apply for Council Tax Support, Change of Address, Change of Income and Change of Household Members. During this time, please e-mail us evidence instead of making a visit.
You can visit the Connect Online Portal to access your Council Tax account and correspondence. Need to let our Council Tax know about a change? We offer a variety of online forms including moves, discounts and exemption.
Due to the current situation, any hearings due to take place at Northampton Magistrates Court will be postponed.
