Council Tax discount and exemptions for single persons and disregarded adults

Severely mentally impaired

If an adult who lives at the property is severely mental impaired, you may be eligible for a Council Tax discount. If the property is lived in by only people or a person that is severely mental impaired, then the property would be exempt from paying Council Tax.

What you will need

As part of the application you must let us know which benefit they receive or are entitled to. To support this, you will need to provide a copy of the award letter. If the adult qualifies but does not claim any benefits, you will need to request a letter from the DWP which confirms their entitlement.
