I can't pay my council tax - what should I do?

If you are on a low income you should check that you have claimed all the benefits that you are entitled to by visiting the GOV.UK benefits pages.

You can also visit our benefits pages to check if you qualify for council tax support.

Visit our dedicated debt advice and support page for more information.

If you are still concerned about your ability to pay your council tax, we would encourage you to contact our council tax helpline on 01242 264161.
