Local Council Tax Reduction

Covid 19 – working age customers in receipt of Local Council Tax Reduction Scheme (LCTRS)

The Government have asked local authorities to pay a top up to all working age customers up to £150.00 on to their Council Tax account for 2020/21. There is no need to apply for this payment, it will automatically be awarded to your Council Tax account. Where your liability for Council Tax for 2020/21 is less than £150.00 for the year you will receive a reduced amount to cover the charge. Stratford-on-Avon District Council is working on this and will make these payment as soon as possible.
