Press Release from Stroud District Council: -
We're preparing to issue Council Tax rebates to help with rising energy costs
Stroud District Council is urging residents to pay Council Tax bills by direct debit, in order to receive their £150 Council Tax energy rebate more quickly.
More than 54,000 households in the Stroud district will receive their Council Tax bills for the year 2022/23 this week (w/c 14 March). More »
Householders who live in Council Tax bands A to D will qualify for a £150 rebate as part of the Government's initiative to help households with rising energy costs. It will not be taken off residents' council tax bills when they are issued but will be a separate payment.
The rebate is expected to be paid to people who pay their Council Tax by direct debit from April, after their first payment has been collected. It will be paid into the same account the payments are taken from.
Anyone who doesn't currently pay by direct debit can sign up by registering for a My SDC account – it's quick and easy to do, and will allow you to access council services online, including Council Tax, business rates, housing benefit and council tax support: www.stroud.gov.uk/council-tax/my-sdc-account
Once the direct debit has been set up and a first payment collected, the rebate will be made.
Anyone who continues to pay their Council Tax by other methods will be contacted with details of how to apply for the rebate in due course.
Cllr Doina Cornell, Leader of Stroud District Council said: "It is important that this payment to eligible households is made as quickly as possible.
"Paying your Council Tax by direct debit means we will have your details ready for when we can start making payments."
There is more information about the energy rebate on the Stroud District Council website www.stroud.gov.uk/energyrebate and at www.gov.uk/government/news/households-urged-to-get-ready-for-150-council-tax-rebate
Although Stroud District Council bills residents, most of the bill is paid out to Gloucestershire County Council, with police and parish or town councils also getting a share. » Less
