Form help guide

Help for those on low incomes:

If you are on benefit or low income (or you share your home with people who are) you may be entitled to a reduction in your bill. The reduction will depend on a number of things such as: How much money you have coming in; how many people live with you; how much you have in savings or capital. If you are under 60 and have £16,000 or more in capital or savings, then you will not be entitled to any Council Tax Benefit.
