Council Tax Reduction Scheme

The Council Tax benefit scheme was abolished by the Government from April 2013, this was replaced with a Council Tax Reduction Scheme.

Council Tax Reduction Scheme helps people on a low income pay their Council Tax bill; it can help you pay all or part of your Council Tax.  Council Tax Reduction Scheme does not cover any water or waste water charges which you are due to pay along with your Council Tax.

Customers claiming Council Tax Reduction will still need to provide details of their income so they can be means tested to determine how much of a reduction they receive.

Anyone who is liable to pay Council Tax can make a claim for Council Tax Reduction.
