Council tax reduction (CTR)


Council Tax Reduction (CTR) is a financial support scheme put in place to help individuals and families who are struggling to pay their council tax bills.

Instead of awarding a benefit payment, the Council Tax Reduction scheme works by calculating a reduction to your council tax bill. It is means-tested, meaning eligibility depends on things like your income, any savings you have, the size of your household, and individual circumstances.
