Council Tax Reduction notifications 

We no longer send out Council Tax Reduction (CTR) notifications. Your Council Tax bill confirms the CTR award amount. The back of your bill also provides you with information regarding your rights of appeal and duty to notify a change in circumstances.  You can view your CTR breakdown by registering and logging in. Register or log in here  Council Tax Options - Milton Keynes City Council (necsws.com). You can request a copy of your statement by email, post or telephone.
