What the Council Tax Rebate is

The Council Tax Rebate is a one-off payment to help with rising energy costs. 

There is a different rebate for people in council tax bands E to H

Households in England in council tax bands A to D will get £150 from their council from April 2022 as part of the government’s Energy Bills Rebate scheme. 

You will get one payment per household. You do not have to pay the money back.
