Sign up for direct debit to receive your £150 council tax energy rebate sooner

Posted on:

Dudley Council is urging residents to pay their council tax bill by direct debit in order to receive their £150 council tax energy rebate sooner.

As part of the government’s initiative to help households with rising energy costs, most residents in council tax bands A to D will receive a £150 rebate.

It will not be taken off residents’ council tax bills, which are being sent out this month, but will be issued as a separate payment at a later date.

Those who pay by direct debit will receive this payment automatically in the weeks following their April direct debit being taken.

Anyone not currently paying by direct debit can sign up to pay by direct debit.

Once the direct debit has been set up and a first payment collected, the rebate will then be paid in the following weeks.

Councillor Steve Clark, cabinet member for finance, said:

We want to get this rebate to residents as quickly as possible.
Paying your council tax by direct debit is the simplest and most convenient way to pay and will mean we can make this payment to you automatically.
If you’re not already paying by direct debit, please visit to sign up.
The sooner we have your details, the sooner we can send you your payment.

Anyone who continues to pay their council tax by other methods will be contacted with details of how to apply for the rebate in due course.
