Council Tax Support – Fareham Borough Council
Council Tax Support is means tested. You can claim Council Tax Support if you are the person who is responsible for paying the Council Tax for the property you live in. If you are making a claim for Housing Benefit, you can make a claim for Council Tax Benefit on the same form. In general, the same information is required to assess your claim. You cannot qualify for Housing Benefit or (most) Council Tax Benefit if you and your partner have £16,000 or more in savings and investments. The home you live in and personal possessions do not count as investments.
