Apply for Council Tax Reduction
If you are a pensioner, you can get help towards the full amount of Council Tax you have to pay. This means that if you get full Council Tax Reduction you should not have to pay anything towards your bill.
If you are not a pensioner, you can only get help towards 91.5 percent of your Council Tax liability. This means that even if you get full Council Tax Reduction you will still have some Council Tax to pay.
In all cases, the amount of Council Tax Reduction you can get depends on your financial circumstances. The full award gets reduced if we think you can pay something towards your Council Tax.
If you pay rent for your home you might also be entitled to Housing Benefit to help with this. You only need to complete one claim form. We will assess your entitlement to both benefits at the same time.
