Council Tax support
You could be eligible for help with your Council Tax bill if you are on a low income or claim benefits. The help you could receive will depend on:
- your circumstances (eg income, number of children, benefits, residency status)
- your household income - this includes savings, pensions and your partner’s income
- if your children live with you
- if other adults live with you
