Council Tax Payment
Council Tax Payment is a Means Tested Benefit for those who are responsible to pay Council Tax and are on a low income. A full Council Tax bill is based on 2 or more adults living in a household.
There are 3 things you will need to know:
- The valuation band for your home in England and Wales and in Scotland
- How much your local council charges for that band
- Whether you can get a discount or exemption from the full bill - for example, people living on their own get a 25% discount
This Is How The Portland Centre Can Help You
At the Portland Centre we will help you find the answers to these questions and help you find out if you’re eligible and apply for a Council Tax discount.
We can also help you challenge your Council Tax band if you think your home is in the wrong valuation band.
All Benefits come with a number of 'conditions of eligibility'. To get independent help, information and advice, pop into the Portland Centre and we will be happy to run through all the conditions to make sure you never loose out through not knowing.
If you need help with making sure you get everything you are entitled to, just call us on 01305 824333 or email us using our contact form or pop in to see a Portland Centre Staff member, to receive immediate assistance.
