I can't pay my Council Tax
If you are having problems paying your Council Tax, you need to contact us straight away. The sooner you let us know, the sooner we can help.
If you are on a low income or state benefits, you might qualify for Council Tax Support. This will reduce the amount of Council Tax you have to pay.
You might be eligible for a discount of your Council Tax, or you might qualify for a Council Tax exemption.
We might also be able to make an alternative payment arrangement.
