The application window will be open for a 4-week period and will close on 5 July.

Households in council tax bands A-D are eligible to receive a non-repayable £150 Council Tax Rebate from the Government to help households with rising energy bills. West Oxfordshire District Council will be distributing the payments to everyone eligible within the district.

This rebate will not be taken off your council tax bill, but administered as a separate payment. Therefore you will not see it on your council tax bill for the 2022/23 financial year. A leaflet from the Government explaining more about the rebate was included in your council tax bill: £150 rebate leaflet.

Before contacting us please check you are eligible for the rebate by visiting the Government council tax factsheet website . Please note the rebate is not eligible for second homes, empty properties, houses not in band A-D and those living in homes of multiple occupancy will not individually receive the rebate.
