Council tax support
Anyone whose income or earnings are impacted by the current COVID-19 pandemic and who may now struggle to meet their next council tax payment should visit our council tax reduction page or contact us by telephone on 01748 901073 to find out if they are entitled to a reduction.
This includes those who have set up Direct Debits to pay by instalments. Payment will be deducted automatically unless you act quickly.
Those whose earnings are unaffected should continue to meet their tax liabilities.
Please go to our dedicated Coronavirus page for further advice and information.
Money and benefits advice service
Local Citizens Advice offices across North Yorkshire have launched a new helpline to increase their capacity for the additional demand that the Covid-19 pandemic has created.
You can call the helpline if you need support with:
- benefit entitlement, claims and appeals
- accessing other income such as charitable and statutory grants
- managing your money and making it go further
- help with debts
- finding out what other support services are available
The Money and Benefits Advice Service is for anyone living in North Yorkshire. The service sits alongside all the normal advice services Citizens Advice offer.
Call 0300 3031 598, Monday to Friday, between 9am to 4pm (or leave a voicemail outside of these times). Alternatively email advice can be requested via their online contact form.
