Coronavirus: Information for Council Tax payers

Coronavirus: Information for Council Tax payers
20 March 2020

With recent developments in the coronavirus outbreak, we understand that many Council Tax payers may be worried about the bills for the new financial year that we recently issued.

If your income is changing because of the new measures put in place to tackle the spread of the virus and you are worried about being able to pay your Council Tax or other bills, you should get money advice as soon as you can. More information is available from our website here.

You may be entitled to a means-tested Council Tax Reduction which could reduce your bill – you can get more information about applying on our website here.

We would like to assure Council Tax payers who have kept their Council Tax up to date in the past that we will not take unreasonable recovery action if you are now having difficulties, and would encourage you to contact us on 01856 873535 to discuss your options.
