Discount - council tax: Outline

The amount of Council Tax that is paid depends on the valuation band the property is in and the number of people aged 18 or over living in the property. Discounts are provided in certain circumstances to Council Tax.

The Council can reduce a bill by 25 per cent or 50 per cent, depending on how many people are living in the property. If only one person is counted as living in the property a discount of 25 per cent can be given. If all adult occupants are disregarded for Council Tax purposes a discount of 50 per cent may be awarded.
