Calculation of Council Tax Reduction

Council Tax Reduction is based on your weekly income minus your weekly applicable amount (the figure the government sets to reflect your day-to-day living expenses).

If your weekly income is less than your weekly applicable amount, you will qualify for the maximum Council Tax Reduction available, minus any deduction made for any other adults living in the house (non-dependent deductions).

We can award a maximum Council Tax Reduction of 100% excluding water and sewerage charges, after taking into account any disabled person's reduction, discounts and non-dependent deductions.

You can check if you might be entitled to a Council Tax Reduction by using our Benefits Calculator.
