Discretionary payments for Council Tax

1. Overview

Discretionary payments may be paid to your Council Tax account if you're struggling to pay.

Read our Discretionary Support Policy (PDF 125.69Kb) for more information.

You may be able to get a discretionary payment if:

  • you've claimed Council Tax Support and you've been affected by a restriction in our local scheme. Eg;
    • your Council Tax Support cannot be backdated
    • we've capped the band used to work out your Council Tax Support
  • you've taken all reasonable steps to resolve your financial difficulties but you need more help with your Council Tax payments
