Council Tax Support
The Council Tax Benefit scheme ended on 31 March 2013. The Government requested all councils replace it with their own locally designed scheme from 1st April 2013.
Due to significant cuts in Government funding it has not been possible for all South Holland residents to receive the same amount of help paying their Council Tax from 1st April 2013.
South Holland District Council have agreed a new scheme that aims to spread the burden of these Government cuts as fairly as possible whilst protecting the most vulnerable members of our community.
The new scheme is called Council Tax Support (CTS) - SHDC Council Tax Support Scheme 2016-2017 [1Mb] Regulations

From year 01 April 2014 you will have to pay at least 25% of your Council Tax if you are of working age. Persons that are of pensionable age or in receipt of War Disablement Pension will not be affected.
Council Tax Support will be calculated as a means tested discount, the amount each household will have to pay will be dependent on their individual circumstances.
