Council tax energy rebate information


Council tax energy rebate information

The Government has announced that a Council Tax rebate grant will be provided to households in England from April 2022 to help with some of the impact of rising energy costs. Eligible households across Bottisham will start to receive their £150 energy cost council tax rebate from Friday 20 May 2022.

A rebate grant of £150 will be paid to households in Council Tax bands A-D in England. This includes those whose Council Tax bill is £0 owing to an existing award of Council Tax support, as well as certain exempt dwellings.

The rebate grant will not be payable in respect of empty properties, second homes or those occupied by military personnel. The Ministry of Defence will be in touch with residents of armed forces accommodation that is exempt under class O about corresponding cost of living support.

To be eligible to receive this payment you must be liable for council tax on 1 April 2022 for:

  • A property in council tax bands A to D
  • A property in council tax band E and in receipt of the disabled band reduction
  • A property where the following exemptions have been awarded

Class N (a dwelling occupied entirely by students – other than Houses of Multiple Occupation (HMO) for council tax purposes)

Class S (a dwelling occupied wholly by persons under the age of 18)

Class U (a dwelling occupied wholly by persons who are severely mentally impaired)

Class W (annexes occupied by a dependent relative)

The band for your property is shown on your council tax bill or you can check online at: GOV.UK - Check your council tax band
