Don't miss out on your £150 Council Tax rebate!
To help households with rising energy costs, the Government has announced a £150 council tax rebate (payment) for households in bands A to D. If you are eligible and pay by direct debit you should receive the rebate automatically. If you pay by other means you may need to apply on-line via your local council, e.g.
Council Tax energy rebate (Oxford City Council).
There is also a discretionary scheme for some households in bands E-H, including where all the occupants are students. You will need to apply for the discretionary scheme regardless of your payment method and provide evidence of how you meet the eligibility criteria.
You should apply for your rebate by 31 August 2022.
