Council Tax refunds

We will automatically take what we owe you off your next bill if there is an overpayment showing on your account. You can tell us if you'd rather have the money now. You can ask us to pay the money into your bank account or to credit it to a different Council Tax account in your name. We don’t normally send cheques. 

Where you will be due a refund because you have moved or something else has changed, you will first need to tell us about the house move or about the change in circumstances.

Contact the Council Tax team to ask for a refund

If you get an unexpected call or message about a Council Tax refund, be careful - see  Council Tax scams.
