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 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 or phone us on 0191 433 3600.
