RESIDENTS eligible for the £150 council tax rebate in Slough can apply now.

Thousands of direct debit payers have already received their money, but now those who pay in other ways can also apply.

Letters are being sent out to those eligible, but they can apply online before it arrives.

Residents will need their council tax number, their bank sort code and account number and an email address.

On the online form, residents will be asked to verify their account to confirm they are an eligible household.

This is through the government’s Spotlight system, which is it rejects the claim the council will need to credit the £150 to the individual’s council tax account.

If the name, address or bank details are incorrect, it will delay the application being processed.

Applications close on July 20.

Payment will be made within four weeks, though it is expected to be a lot quicker than that.

Visit the Slough Borough Council website to apply.
