Council tax support during the coronavirus emergency

More information is available to residents who are struggling to pay their council tax during the coronavirus emergency.

Mayor Ros Jones, along with the council’s cabinet and leadership team, has drawn up a £5m 10-point action plan to help the most vulnerable in Doncaster, and one of the points include a three month council tax holiday. 
 
“We recognise the huge challenge that is before all of us and Doncaster Council is absolutely committed to supporting all our residents, especially our most vulnerable,” said Mayor Jones.
 
“This is not a discount, just a break from paying. We have set it up so that anyone who is facing financial difficulty, as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, can let us know so we can help them.”
 
Anyone who thinks they need to access this support should telephone 01302 734454 where they will be able to discuss their circumstances. 
 
Residents who take up this offer will be contacted at the end of the three month holiday (June) and will be issued with a new bill. The amount that is left owing will be collected over the remaining months of the year according to their instalment plan. If further assistance is required, based on financial circumstances at that time, this will also be considered.
