Summary
The UK government is proposing to localise support for council tax from 2013-2014, abolishing council tax benefits (CTB) across Britain and giving grants to local authorities in England and to the Scottish and Welsh governments to design their own systems for providing support for council tax to low-income families. This study examines the likely effects of this policy: localisation will strengthen local authorities' incentives to promote employment and growth, but will also give them an incentive to discourage low-income families from living in the area, and a disincentive to encourage take-up of support; total funding from central government is due to fall by 10 per cent; the government plans to give each local authority a grant based on 90 per cent of what would have been spent on CTB in that area; since almost half of CTB goes to the lowest-income fifth of households, it is unsurprising that all the options analysed would hit poor households hardest
