Need help? Advice during COVID-19 crisis Benefits Advice and Financial Support Council Tax Support - Birmingham Up to £150 discounts for working age people receiving Council Tax Support Every working age household in receipt of Council Tax Support will receive a £150 reduction in your Council Tax bill unless your bill is less than £150, in which case your bill will be reduced to zero. You do not need to apply for this reduction and we aim to process this by the end of July 2020. Once the £150 has been credited to your account it will be deducted from any future instalments. If you have made payments and the award of £150 puts your Council Tax account into credit then this credit will be refunded. For example if your balance was £200 and you have already paid £100 towards your account, the £150 will still be credited and we will issue a refund of £50.
