Council Tax energy rebate
The Government gave a £150.00 rebate to Council Tax payers in bands A – D (and Band E if you get Disabled Persons Reduction) to help with energy costs. We were also provided with funding for a discretionary support scheme.
You must have been living in your property on Friday 1 April 2022 to have received the payment. Both the main scheme and the discretionary scheme ended on 30 November 2022, and during the last week in November we were making payments, and issuing payment advice letters, to some households for the discretionary scheme. If you were entitled to a payment you will have received a letter from us.
We have been made aware of some scam calls about the government’s £150 Council Tax energy rebate. We will not call you over the phone to take payment or bank details, nor will we ask for any other personal information over the phone about this.
If you are in any doubt please call us on 01304 872199. If you have been a victim please contact us and the Police straight away, and report it to Action Fraud.
