Post subject: Council tax
Is there any reduction if only my OH is working and we claim child benefit? Not entirely clued up on everything we're entitled to.
Just read something on another forum now can't find it again!
Thanks in advance for any help x

"You should not have to pay Council Tax as you qualify for full Council Tax Benefit. Our calculation is based on you receiving £21.00 from child tax credit. "
From a calculation form I just took supplied by entitledto ? Sorry, didn't mean child benefit, meant tax credit.
I'm currently on maternity but not going back to work when it ends, so any money help at all will be extremely useful. Exploring a lot of sites to find out what's available!

Hi, don't know if you got it all sorted, but you can try claiming council tax benefit. We get this, it took our monthly payments from £150 to £44. You claim this through your local council. They should have an application form/info on their website.
