Council Tax - Reminders
This section gives you more information about Council Tax reminders.
The bill for Council Tax will state how it should be paid. Normally it will be payable by monthly instalments on dates shown on the bill. If an instalment is not paid a reminder will be issued.
It is important that a reminder is paid quickly. If not, further action may be taken and costs incurred.
What if I am on a low Income?
If you are on a low income you may be able to get Council Tax Benefit to help with your bill. However, you must apply for this and provide all necessary information to support your claim. Click here for more information about Council Tax Benefit.
To check if you may be eligible you can try our on line benefits calculator.
Until any claim for benefits is assessed the Council Tax remains payable as billed and the reminder should be paid.
If you have appealed against your Council Tax banding the Council Tax should still be paid until the outcome of your appeal is known. If you are successful in your appeal any overpayment that results will be repaid.
What is I disagree with the bill?
If you feel the bill is incorrect e.g. you believe someone else is liable or you should be given a discount or exemption you should contact the Council Tax section as soon as possible.
