What is Council Tax Reduction?

If you’re on a low income, you may be entitled to some help towards paying your council tax. This is called a Council Tax Reduction (CTR).

If you’re awarded CTR, you won’t normally receive an actual payment. Instead, your award will be used to reduce the amount of council tax you have to pay.

To find out more about how CTR is awarded, when the award starts, when it ends and what happens if there are any delays please click here
