Council Tax support

Council Tax Support provides help to pay your Council Tax. 

You don't need to be getting another benefit to qualify for Council Tax support, but you must be on a low income.

If you would like to claim Council Tax support, download our benefit claim form - you don't need to complete the sections on rent unless you also need help towards your rent.

If you want to claim Council Tax support, email benefits@rutland.gov.uk to tell us this and also your council tax account number - you'll then have a month to return the form to us without losing out. 

If you're of pension age and have savings of more than £16,000, you will not get Council Tax Support unless you also get Pension Credit Guarantee.

If you're of working age and have savings of more than £10,000, you will not get Council Tax support.  

There are other types of support available, including discounts and exemptions that aren't decided on your income.
