Council Tax Reduction scheme

Council Tax Reduction is the way we help people on low incomes pay their council tax bill.

We work out how much you are entitled to by looking at who lives with you, how much income and savings you have and how much your council tax bill is.

From April 2016, the maximum amount of Council Tax Reduction we can award to people of working age is 85% of their council tax bill.

These changes do not apply to pensioners.

You can use the calculator to find out how much help you could get to reduce your council tax bill.
