What is Local Council Tax Support and Who Can Apply?

Local Council Tax Support is a welfare benefit administered by Basildon Council in order for provide financial support to people who are on a low income or unemployed, for the payment of Council Tax.

On 1st April 2013 the old Council Tax Benefit was replaced by the Local Council Tax Support scheme.  Every year each Local Authority must review its scheme.  This year, due to a cut in funding from central government Basildon Council has less money to pay out in Council Tax Support to people of working age.
