Extra council tax support for working age households

Council tax payers of working age who receive council tax support will be entitled to a further reduction in their council tax for 2020/21. We will credit your account with an extra £150 (or if your balance is less than that, then until your council tax bill is zero).

We are working hard to get this done as soon as we can. We will process this automatically so you don't need to contact us. Visit manage your council tax, benefits or business rates account to sign up for online services so that you get your council tax demand notice quickly.
