Benefits - Council Tax Reduction
If you are liable to pay Council Tax and your income and capital (savings and investments) are below a certain level you may be eligible for Council Tax Reduction.
This is means tested and is determined not only by your income but by who lives with you.
If you return to work after being on benefit, you may be entitled to receive Extended Council Tax Reduction.
If you have savings of £16,000 or over, you cannot normally get Council Tax Reduction unless you are receiving the ‘Guarantee Credit’ of Pension Credit.
