Birmingham City Council consultation on Council Tax Benefit goes live

by on 10 September, 2012

Council Tax Benefit is changing

At the moment, people who are liable to pay council tax and are assessed as needing financial help to do so are entitled to Council Tax Benefit. This benefit is administered by the Council but paid for by the Government.

As part of Welfare Reform the Government has announced that Council Tax Benefit is to be abolished and replaced from April 2013 by new local financial support schemes, called Council Tax Support. How these schemes are operated will be decided by local authorities themselves.

Birmingham City Council now seeks your views on the changes proposed to council tax benefit – please visit for more details.
