Council Tax Benefits are changing – and it could affect everyone
Purbeck District Council is reminding residents that changes to Council Tax Benefits could affect everyone in the district.
From April 2013, the Government will be ending national Council Tax Benefit and councils will be replacing it with their own local schemes, called Council Tax Support.
Councillor Suttle concluded: “As the changes could have an impact on every council tax payer and service user, not just those who claim Council Tax Benefit, we are urging everyone to have their say.”
The questionnaire and information can be found on the council’s website at www.dorsetforyou.com/counciltaxsupport. Alternatively, telephone 01929 557240 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request a questionnaire.
The closing date for the consultation is Monday 5 November 2012.
