Council Tax Support
Council Tax Support is to help people on low incomes pay their Council Tax. It is means tested so your income and savings have to be below a certain level to get help.
From April 2013 Council Tax Support replaced the Council Tax Benefit Scheme. The Government instructed that, for working age people, councils can decide their own scheme. This means the Council Tax Support scheme could be different depending where you live. Council Tax support policy for your council is available. For pension age people and certain vulnerable people, your local council must apply the same rules that were in place for Council Tax Benefit.
Alternatively you can claim Second Adult Rebate.
You cannot get both Council Tax Support and Second Adult Rebate at the same time. If you qualify for both, you will receive the one that pays the most.
