Single Person Discount Review 2017/18

Single Person Discount Review 2017/18

If you are the only adult living in a property you can claim a single person discount of 25% on your council tax and people claiming the discount must tell us if their circumstances change. Changes that might affect the discount could be:

  • a son or daughter turns 18
  • a partner moves into the home
  • a student's course ends
  • a school or college leaver, aged 18 or 19, who leaves school or college between 1st May and 31st October won't affect the discount until 1st November.

In addition, all councils are required to make sure that discounts are being claimed properly so reviews are carried out to find out if people's circumstance have changed since the time the discount was granted.
