    I've worked out I should get it. How and when I don't know. I'm not sure if one month's direct debit will just be reduced by 150 or if it will be spread over the year.

    It could be as late as June.

    If you are band A-D and pay by direct debit then you should just get it in your accounts as I think the WG decided to do the same as UK govt.

    The communication from the council is awful on it. I'm sure people understand some delays but my understanding is it was supposed to be from April 1st, so June seems bad really.

    My guess is councils will go out of their way to get them done before May 5th

    June here in South Derbyshire as the delay is caused by the introduction of the new IT system needed (Of course)

    My DD for April has gone out today for the increased amount, so I guess it will be off the back of these payments coming in.

    No support for band E - #shaftedtime&timeagain

    Re: council tax rebate 150

    To be fair, no system is perfect and i can imagine there is a large amount of admin and IT involved in doing this.

    What just bugs me a bit is the lack of information. By definition this payment is important, so let people know when realistically they can expect it, at least what monthly pay packet they should budget it for etc.

    Agree on band E issues. Council tax bandings are beyond imperfect, but my understanding is they are using it because its a quicker (!!) way of getting money out and obviously there is a strong if imperfect relationship between income and council tax banding

    It's funded from taxes. What's your point?

    Many people will not put this rebate of 150 to good use
    Surely it would have been more beneficial to lower everyone’s council tax bill by 150 also saving tax payers money being used to implement this scheme

    I haven't even been informed what my new council tax for this year is yet, and we are already 1/3 of the way through April.

    It's meant to help those towards the lower end of household income (in a crude way) which won't happen if you give it to every household.
