If you pay your Council Tax by Direct Debit, you may have had an automatic payment directly into your bank account during May 2022 without having to make an application. Please check your bank account for a £150 payment from Kirklees Council before getting in touch with us.

If you weren't able to apply you have not lost out on your £150.

If you are eligible and you did not claim your £150 energy rebate we credited it onto your Council Tax account before the end of September 2022.

This was to make sure we met the Government's requirements that all payments must be made by 30 September 2022.

We recalculated your Council Tax bill and sent a new one at the beginning of October 2022. The £150 will show on the bill together with any other payments.

You can request this payment as a refund, but please be aware that your instalments may change again, and you will receive another bill.

You do not need to contact us again once you have submitted your refund request, and please allow up to three weeks for it to arrive with you.
