    Council Tax benefits are decided on a local level, are you comfortable disclosing which local authority you live under?

    Does the letter give a reason for the increase? 

    You could maybe phone them and ask them to explain why it's gone up so much, it could be they've changed their criteria or something as simple as an admin error.
