People disregarded from paying council tax

There are various groups of people who will not be counted for Council Tax, however you will need to apply for the relevant discount and show us evidence where requested.

A Council Tax bill is usually calculated based on two or more adults over 18 living in a property. If one or more adults are disregarded for Council Tax, leaving only one adult responsible for paying the bill, we will give a discount of 25 per cent.

In some cases, the property owner is responsible for paying Council Tax, meaning residents are exempt.
