Council Tax Discounts

There are various discounts that can reduce the Council Tax you have to pay and are separate from Council Tax Benefit/Support.

The Council Tax charge is based on two or more adults living in the property. If only one adult lives in a property as their main home, there is a reduction of one quarter (25%).  For substantially unfurnished second or long term empty homes and properties that are furnished second homes there is no discount.

If you don't live alone you could still claim a discount if the other adults are not counted for council tax when we calculate the bill, we would call this a "disregard discount". Further information on disregard discount categories can be found below.

If you think you should be entitled to a discount you can tell us online, download the form (pdf) or contact our Council Tax team using the contact details at the bottom of the page.

 If your bill indicates that a discount has been allowed, you must tell the Council of any change in circumstances which affects your entitlement.
