This document presents a concise account of possible changes to Council Tax Benefit (CTB), both to make it fairer and to increase the rate of take-up which is worse than that for any other means-tested benefit. It has been written to help the Local Government Association (LGA) and its members form a view about what could be done about these matters, as well as for circulation to a wider audience.
