Council Tax Support scheme consultations and official text

Update of Council Tax Support scheme 2020

Each year Merton must review and agree a new Council Tax Support (CTS) scheme. The consultation is now open and closes on 12th October 2020. Please go to our Consultations page to have your say. We will publish the results here once the consultation is complete.

Official text of the Council Tax Support scheme

By law, we have to publish the full scheme each year. The documents below are the legal text defining the scheme. You do not need to read these to make a claim.

New scheme rules come into force on 1 April each year, and are valid until 31 March of the following year.
