Council tax discounts and disregards
The council tax bill assumes that there are two adults living in a dwelling.
If a dwelling is occupied by only one adult then the bill is reduced by 25%. Complete the online Council Tax Single Person Discount application form to apply.
Alternatively you can download a copy of the form to complete and return.
If there are two or more adults in a property no discount is allowed.
Certain people will be disregarded when calculating the Council Tax bill. This applies if a number of people live in a property and all but one come within one or more of the discount/disregarded categories, the property is treated as having just one resident for Council Tax purposes, and a 25% discount applies. If all occupants are disregarded then a 50% discount applies.
The classes of persons who may be eligible for discount are described in the pages listed below.
