Local Council Tax Support

Local Council Tax Support is a reduction of your council tax bill based on:

  • Your income
  • The size of your family
  • Other adults who live with you
  • The amount of Council Tax you have to pay

In general, the lower your income the more the bill can be reduced by Local Council Tax Support. From 1st April 2015 everyone of working age will have to pay at least 20% of their bill.

Other adults (non-dependants) who live with you may be expected to help you pay the Council Tax. This means you may get less help from Local Council Tax Support.

The rules for Local Council Tax Support  are different depending on whether you are:

  • Working age
  • Pension age
