Covid-19 (coronavirus) Council Tax Hardship Fund 2020-21

Households currently receiving Council Tax Support and of working age will receive a one-off reduction of up to £150 on their Council Tax Bill.

If you are not required to pay any Council Tax in 2020-21 then the reduction does not apply.

If you were due to pay less than £150 in 2020-21, your bill will be reduced to zero, so you won’t have to pay anything.

You do not need to apply for this funding. We will use existing Council Tax Support information we hold to automatically reduce your bill. A new bill will be issued to you shortly.
