What is Council Tax Support
Council Tax Support is a means tested discount you can apply for if you are liable to pay council tax and on a low income.
The maximum discount you can get if you are under 65 years of age is 91.5% of the total council tax payable. If you are over 65 years of age you can receive a discount of up to 100% of the council tax payable.
The actual amount of discount you receive will depend on your income and savings, your personal circumstances and the circumstances of any other people who live with you who are aged 18 or over.
Any discount awarded will be credited to your council tax account to reduce the amount you owe. If this puts your account in credit due to payments you have already made, we will refund the credit to you.
