Thousands of households across Wales could be missing out council tax reductions and Wrexham’s Assembly Member, Lesley Griffiths, is urging local residents to check whether they are entitled to discounts.
You may be entitled to pay less council tax if:
- You live in a low income household
- You live alone or with people/children who do not pay council tax
- You are a student
- You are mentally impaired
- You are disabled
- Your property is empty
The Welsh Government is working with local authorities and third sector organisations to make people more aware of the range of support available to help them pay their council tax bills. A new awareness-rising campaign will be launched and a straightforward eligibility checker is available online.
Lesley Griffiths AM said: “The Welsh Government believes there are many households across the country that are simply unaware they could be eligible for certain discounts and exemptions when it comes to paying their council tax bills.”
“I would encourage Wrexham residents to check the website to see whether they could save money and pay less council tax.”
A full list of eligibility criteria is available on the Welsh Government website
