Discount or exemption if a person is in prison

Question

What if I am (or someone I lived with is) now in prison?

Answer

If someone has gone into prison a discount or exemption could apply on the person's home. This depends on how many people now live there. A discount can be granted if there is now only one adult living in the property. And an exemption will apply if no one is living there.

If you think that you might be entitled to this discount you can apply online for a single person council tax discount, or please print an exemption as resident in prison form (pdf) and send it to us.

A discount or exemption cannot be granted if the person is in prison for not paying council tax.
