Council Tax Reduction Scheme for Persons on a Low Income

applying The Council Tax Reduction scheme ensures that households on the lowest incomes have their bill reduced.  From 1 April 2017,  working age customers will have to pay a minimum contribution of 10% of their council tax charge.

In certain cases, pensioners and working age customers who receive certain state benefits due to their disabilities, are entitled to a 100% reduction and will not have to pay council tax.

For more information about the council tax reduction scheme and other benefits such as Housing Benefit and Universal Credit see newforest.gov.uk/benefits or contact our Benefits Team on 01590 646121 or by e-mail at benefits@nfdc.gov.uk
