If you're on a low income you may be able to get help towards your council tax. You can apply if you are working, or unemployed.

You’ll still need to pay 12.5% of your bill unless you are of pension credit age.

You can apply for council tax support if you:

  • Live at the property,
  • Pay council tax and
  • Have a low income or are entitled to a benefit paid by the Department for Work and Pensions or the Pension Service.
  • Have capital of less than £3000, if you are working age; or £16,000 if you are of pension credit age
