Council tax reduction

Council tax reduction (CTR) is a means tested discount that is applied to your council tax bill.

You may be entitled to CTR if you are on a low income and struggling to afford your council tax bill.

See the benefits calculator to see if you're eligible for CTR.

You may qualify for Second Adult Rebate if a second adult (other than a partner or jointly liable person) is living at your property and is on a low income.

CTR is not the same as a single persons discount, which is available if you are the only adult living in a property.

For 2019/20 more detailed information please see our Council Tax reduction scheme document.
