Housing Benefit - Entitlement

Local Council Tax Support

Local Council Tax Support (LCTS) is the new scheme following the abolition of Council Tax Benefit on 31 March 2013.

LCTS helps people on low income to pay their Council Tax. If awarded, LCTS is deducted from your Council Tax liability, reducing your bill.

To claim Local Council Tax Support you must be the person liable to pay the council tax bill for a property.
