Council Tax Support and how to claim

If you're a low income household you may be able to get a reduction on your Council Tax.

The amount of Council Tax Support you get will be based on:

  • your family circumstances
  • the money and earnings you have coming in
  • any savings you have. If your capital exceeds £8000, you will not qualify. If you are of Pension age you will not qualify if your capital exceeds £16,000.
  • the amount of Universal Credit you receive

You can find out how much Council Tax Support you may be entitled to by using the GOV.UK online calculator.
