9. I am receiving Council Tax Reduction. How do I get the £150 off my bill?

In response to the Coronavirus outbreak, the Government announced details of a hardship fund for people in receipt of Council Tax Reduction.

East Devon residents who receive help through Council Tax Reduction will benefit from an additional £150 off their Council Tax bill. If your bill is already less then £150, then you will have nothing to pay.

We are working hard to ensure that our residents do not need to do anything for this to happen.

When we assess your claim for Council Tax Reduction and you qualify we will also apply this £150 which will reduce the Council Tax bill we send you.

If you unable to pay your Council Tax because you are experiencing financial hardship please complete the Request Financial Support form.
