Council Tax support changed in 2013, so all councils run different systems now. It's been bad for me, because where I previously qualified for some help, now I'm liable for the full amount. Council Tax in my area is pretty steep, too. Anyway, it's now called Council Tax Reduction, and your council will have its own rules regarding wages, income, etc. There's more info on the Citizen's Advice website. I can't link to it, as I've never posted before. Sorry, this probably isn't much help.
