There are several reasons why you may have to pay less than full Council Tax.
Single person discount
A single person discount of 25% may be awarded where there is only one adult over the age of 18 living at a property.
People not counted as liable to pay Council Tax
In certain circumstances, people living in a property can be disregarded for Council Tax purposes.
Reductions for people with disabilities
You may be entitled to Council Tax discount if you are disabled or have a disabled person living with you.
If your property contains more than one self-contained unit/building you may be entitled to a Council Tax discount for the smaller unit (annex).
An exemption from Council Tax means there is no Council Tax to pay for some occupied and unoccupied properties. A number of exemptions can be claimed as long as certain criteria are met.
Council Tax Support
Council Tax Support is a means tested benefit, which is paid to people to help pay their Council Tax.
