How will you get the £150 Council Tax rebate?
If the government has your bank details (because you pay by Direct Debit), you will get the payment into your bank account.
If, on the other hand, the government doesn’t hold your bank details, they will be in touch to get these from you. If you prefer, you can sign up to pay your Council Tax by Direct Debit online.
Does this mean you don’t have to pay your Council Tax bill?
No! You must continue to pay your Council Tax bill by the amounts and on the dates shown on your bill.
Note that if you are not eligible but still need help,
there are different ways your council may help you.
