Council tax support helps you to pay your bill if you are unemployed or on a low income.
The amount of council tax support you receive is deducted from your council tax bill.
To qualify for council tax hardship relief you must:
- be a council tax payer
- be suffering severe financial difficulties and unable to pay your council tax
- be suffering severe financial difficulties because of an extreme event or natural disaster, for which there is no existing help towards paying your council tax
