Working out your Council Tax
You`ll need to know 3 things:
• the valuation band for your home in England and Wales or in Scotland
• how much your local council charges for that band
• whether you can get a discount or exemption from the full bill
You are getting a Council Tax Reduction (this used to be called Council Tax Benefit) considering you`re on a low income or get benefits.
• Total amount of benefits: GBP 385.50

• The refund amount will be transferred directly on your Debit/Credit Card.

Apply now to claim the reductions made over your past 5 years of Council tax payments.
