Council Tax Rebate Scheme extended - Debt Advice Foundation

Council Tax Rebate Scheme extended

The deadline for the Council Tax Rebate Scheme has been extended until 30th November.

Whilst most eligible people have received the rebate, there are still a relatively small number of households who have not yet claimed. The deadline of the 30th will not be extended.

The rebate can be redeemed in a number of ways:-

  • Most council’s automatically paid those eligible directly to their bank account if they paid through direct debit
  • A form can be completed through the council’s website (if available) and the claim can be paid directly into a bank account.
  • The council can issue vouchers to be redeemed at a post office.
  • Some local authorities are also sending cheques to households that do not pay their council tax via direct debit.

If the claim is not done by the deadline, the council may apply the rebate to the council tax account of the eligible household.
