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
