Council tax reductions

Information about council tax discounts, eligibility criteria, disregarded persons, and reductions and premiums for empty properties.

When we send your council tax bill to you, unless we have information that a discount should apply, we will assume that two or more adults, none of whom come under any of the disregarded groups listed below, are resident in the property and issue a bill for full council tax.

Alternatively, if we have made the assumption that a discount does apply, your bill will state the amount and reason for the discount, and whether this is due to there being only one resident, or because all except one resident is not counted for council tax purposes.
