Ben Everitt Urges MK Households To Take Advantage Of Extension To £150 Council Tax Rebate Deadline

Ben Everitt, the MP for Milton Keynes North, has urged households in the city who are yet to receive their £150 Council Tax rebate to take advantage of the deadline extension.

99% of eligible households across Milton Keynes have received their rebate, but the Government estimates a further 820 could be eligible so it has extended the deadline until 30th November and has told local councils to do everything they can to encourage the remaining households to claim their rebate and ensure as many eligible households as possible get the money that they are owed.


The Government's Council Tax rebate scheme has paid more than £13.9 million worth of £150 discounts to households across Milton Keynes.


It also provided a further £503,100 in funding to Milton Keynes City Council to support vulnerable households which were not eligible under the scheme or to provide top-ups to those that were but still needed help.


Ben Everitt, the MP for Milton Keynes North, said: "This Government is absolutely committed to supporting residents in Milton Keynes through the global rise in the Cost Of Living as we have shown through schemes such as the £400 energy bills discount and freezing energy bills and the Energy Price Guarantee.


"The £150 Council Tax Rebate, announced by Rishi Sunak earlier this year, has supported 93,015 households across the city so far, but if you believe you're eligible and haven't received yours yet please do get in touch with the council.


"I want to thank staff members at Milton Keynes City Council for their work in ensuring 99% of eligible households have successfully received their £150 discount so far.


Dehenna Davison, the Levelling Up Minister, added: "Thanks to the tireless work of councils, more than 99% of eligible households up and down the country have received their council tax rebate.


"We are now extending the deadline to claim the £150 payment to ensure as many eligible households as possible receive this payment - I urge everyone to check their eligibility and contact their local council if they have not already."
