Urgent warning for thousands of homeowners to claim £150 council tax rebate NOW | The Sun

THOUSANDS of households have just weeks left to claim the £150 council tax rebate in its cash form – check if you still need to claim.

All households living in council tax bands A-D are entitled to a £150 council tax rebate.

Thousands of households who don't pay their council tax by direct debit and weren't eligible for an automatic payment are yet to claim.

A number of local authorities in England set deadlines for when households in the area had to apply.

So far, over 40 councils have shut applications for the rebate.

If you didn't apply in time, instead of being issued the £150 in cash, you'll be credited the money to your council tax account and will see the amount come off your bill.
