Council Tax refunds

Apply for a Council Tax refund

You can use this service to request a refund on your Council Tax if you believe you have overpaid.

If you are still making payments to us

We will reduce your scheduled payments by the amount that you have overpaid. If you still think the payments are wrong you should contact us

If you are no longer making payments to us

If you have moved away from the area, or your property has become exempt and you are no longer making payments to us we will refund you the amount that you have overpaid.

We will send you a bill which indicates the amount you are in credit and then repay by bank transfer.

Before you start

To use this service you will need:

  • Proof of identification - a scanned image of your passport, driving licence, birth certificate or a bank statement (must match the bank account that is associated with you Council Tax account)
  • Your Council Tax account number - this is a 9 digit number that you can find on your bill
