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, please download our Benefit Claim FormYou don't need to complete the sections on rent unless you also need help towards your rent.

  • If you are 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 are 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 by your income.
