Benefits and Council Tax

Council Tax helps to pay for services we provide for Milton Keynes residents, including vital services such as Education, Social Care, Refuse Collection and Leisure Centres. Discounts, reductions and a selection of benefits are available for those most in need

On 3 February the Chancellor announced a £150 council tax rebate to households in Bands A to D and additional funding to provide a local discretionary rebate scheme. Further details of the scheme can be found on our energy bill rebate page.


Applying on line is easy and you can find all the information you need on these pages. You can call, but there may be a wait. Fewer people call in the afternoons, so why not try then? We don’t take calls on a Wednesday so we can spend the day concentrating on processing applications.
