Show all parts of this guide

1. What help is available?

Council Tax Reduction is available for people on a low income to help them pay their council tax.

If you are of pension age, Council Tax Reduction remains as a means tested scheme.

You can check your pension age using Check your state pension age

From 1 April 2020, Teignbridge has a new Income Banded Council Tax Reduction Scheme for working age people.

Household income is compared to household size in order to work out a discount on your council tax charge.

You must be liable to pay council tax to apply for Council Tax Reduction.

If you/your partner are self employed the income we use to calculate your entitlement might be different from your accounting figures. This is because our council tax reduction scheme includes a minimum income floor.
