Households eligible for the award are those:
- In receipt of a Council Tax Reduction Scheme (CTRS)
- Not in receipt of CTRS but living in properties in Council Tax Bands A-D, and
- Low Income Households Exempt from Council Tax
West Lothian Council is able to confirm that 98.5% of eligible households are liable to pay Council Tax and will receive a £150 credit to their Council Tax account which will be shown in their 2022/23 annual Council Tax bill.
Please note households should receive their annual Council Tax bill for 2022/23 in the next few weeks.
The small number of eligible households that do not have a Council Tax liability (1.5%) will be contacted and receive a direct payment of £150 before the end April 2022.
Information on Council Tax, including Council Tax bands, liability and how you can pay your bill, is available via the West Lothian Council website
