Our reforms will localise council tax support and give councils stronger incentives to support local firms, cut fraud, promote local enterprise and get people into work. We are ending the 'something for nothing' culture and making work pay.
– Local government minister Brandon Lewis
Under the last government, council tax bills doubled.
The coalition Government has worked with councils to freeze council tax for two years, with a further freeze offered for this year.
We are cutting council tax in real terms for hard-working families and pensioners, and we are on the side of people who work hard and want to get on.
