If you’re on a low income, you may be eligible for the Council Tax Reduction Scheme to reduce your council tax bill.

To claim a council tax reduction you must:

  • be 18 or older
  • have a low income
  • have under £16,000 in savings and capital (unless in receipt of Pension credit)
  • be treated as liable for council tax for the property you live in
  • not be a full-time student or treated as a person from abroad.

To calculate a council tax reduction, we’ll ask for:

  • proof of identity
  • income and savings
  • household circumstances
