House of Commons publishes research paper on the council tax rebate

posted on 23 August 2022, updated on 23 August 2022

There is no legislative backing for it: in legal terms, it is a discretionary local payment that is being funded by the UK Government. This means the Government guidance on the rebate and guidance for billing authorities (unitary councils, which administer the scheme) provides all the available information about how the rebate is to be administered.

The House of Commons Library site provides answers to frequently asked questions on how the rebate will work.

Webchat is available Monday to Friday, 09:00 - 17:00 (excluding UK bank holidays).
