Council Tax Support provides help for people on low incomes with their Council Tax bill. The amount you can get depends on your income, savings and whether you are of working age or pension age.
Burnley Borough Council’s scheme from April 2020 requires everyone of working age to pay at least 16% of their council tax. (In 2019-20 it was 17.5%).
If you are of pension age, you may be entitled to council tax support that covers all of your council tax.
