Council tax energy rebate to hit peoples bank accounts this week

Published May 3, 2022 at 17:33

Rossendale Council have begun paying the council tax rebate payments for qualifying direct debit payers which should hit peoples bank accounts from Tuesday 3 May. 

The rebate was announced by the government earlier this year to assist households with the rising energy costs. Properties in council tax bands A-D are entitled to the £150 rebate with a smaller discretionary fund for customers who do not meet the automatic criteria. 

A council spokesperson said: “We have around 19,000 households that pay by direct debit. As there is no separate remittance advice being sent people may not be aware they have received it so should keep an eye on their bank accounts. “ 

People who do not pay by direct debit will be contacted shortly with details of how to apply for their rebate. 

“Once the software necessary to process these payments is set up and working correctly, we will contact those households with details on how to apply. Until then we ask that people do not contact us as answering their queries could hold us up. We will be updating the website and our social media channels when we have more information on the next steps.”
