Council Tax

If you are on a low income you may be entitled to Council Tax Support. Visit Council Tax support for more information and to apply online. If you need help, email benefitenquiries@gateshead.gov.uk or phone us on 0191 433 4646. 
 
The government has announced a program of additional help for those receiving Council Tax Support and if you are entitled to any additional help towards your Council Tax you will be sent a revised Council Tax bill with an explanatory letter. In the meantime, we are advising anyone who is concerned about making a payment to contact the Council Tax team at Gateshead Civic Centre by email counciltax@gateshead.gov.uk or phone us on 0191 433 3600.
