New council tax bill? Make sure you don’t miss out on help

Wednesday 15th March 2017

The past month has seen millions of families across the UK receive their new council tax bill for the coming year.

But did you know that many families with a disabled are eligible for money off their bill?

For instance:

  • If your property has a sensory room or a second bathroom because your child's needs, you might be able to get a disability reduction in your bill.
  • If you care for a severely disabled child who is aged 18 or over, you might be able to get a discount of up to 50 per cent.
  • If you are out of work or on low earnings, you might be able to qualify for a council tax reduction.
