Council tax reduction scheme - If you are having difficulty paying your council tax

As well as the Council Tax Reduction (CTR) Scheme, the Council has also made provision to help those who are experiencing exceptional hardship,  exceptional circumstances or who are recent care leavers. You must claim CTR first.

A cash-limited Discretionary Fund has also been set up as part of the scheme. Awards are temporary to help ease the burden of temporary set backs or life changes.

If you have a bill for Council Tax and you cannot pay all of it due to exceptional financial circumstances, please visit our Apply for Council Tax Hardship Payment, we advise that you read the guidance notes first before applying or call in at one of our One Stop Shops in Queens Buildings, Worksop or 17b The Square, Retford and an advisor can help you. We have money advisors based in the Benefits service who can help you with budgeting, debts or arrears advice. They can be contacted on 01909 533744.

 If you are a care leaver, a separate discount scheme is available to award a full discount up to the age of 25yrs. You will need to contact the Council Tax department for this as you will need to be nominated to the scheme by Nottinghamshire County Council Adult Care Service. You should claim any statutory benefits or discounts that  you are eligible for first.
