Council Tax Rebate

15/06/2022


 As you maybe aware, Government require local authorities to pay residents who were liable for Council Tax in a Band A-D property on 01.04.22, a grant of £150 in order to assist with rising energy costs.

To date, RBWM have awarded £3.2m in such awards. However, they have identified approximately 8,000 residents who have yet to make an application for their £150. They have until the end of September to finalise these payments and will write to those eligible who have not applied as that deadline approaches. However, they would like to encourage as many residents as possible to apply before the need to do that. Unfortunately, uptake is slowing down. As an example, last week they sent approximately 4,500 e-mails to residents but this only resulted in 800 applications.
