City of York - Council Tax Support Scheme Consultation

Monday 28th September 2020

Council Tax Support Scheme Consultation

City of York Council is considering updating York’s CTS scheme and simplifying the way Council Tax Support is allocated.

They would like to know your opinion on proposed changes to the Council Tax Support Scheme (CTS).

Currently, every small change to a claimant’s income and their partner’s income, if they have one means that their Council Tax Support has to be reassessed, their council tax recalculated and a new bill sent.

Constant changes to a person’s council tax bill can be confusing, make budgeting difficult and can make it harder to know what to pay and keep up payments.

Please read about and tell City of York Council what you think of the proposed changes at www.york.gov.uk/consultations. The consultation will run from 1 October until 13 November.
