There's a good chance your Council Tax bill will be bigger from April 2018, so I've taken a look at the ways you can potentially save some money - and possibly even get a backdated refund. Councils are allowed to hike your Council Tax bill by 3%, and some as much as 5.99% when the new bills are sent around in late March, adding yet more to the bills we have to pay. But there are a few ways you might be able to save. Most of you should be able to get 1% or 2% back from a couple of banks, which is better than nothing. Some of you might also be eligible for a discount, and a few of you - if you're willing to put some work in - might even be able to get your Council Tax band downgraded. I've discussed all of these on this week's podcast, and there are more links over at https://becleverwithyourcash.com/cashchats51/.
