Council Tax discount and exemptions for single persons and disregarded adults

The full Council Tax bill assumes that there are two adults living in the property. If only one adult lives in a property (as their main home) the Council Tax bill will be reduced.

Certain people will be disregarded when looking at the number of adults who live in a property if they meet certain conditions. 

There are a few discount options available:

  • If all the adults are disregarded, there is a 50% discount
  • If all but one of the adults living at the property is disregarded, there is a 25% discount
  • If there are two or more adults who are not disregarded, there is no discount.

Please let us know about your household by submitting the appropriate discount application.
