Council Tax discounts
Single Person Discount
The single person discount is 25% off your total council tax bill. You can claim single person discount if:
- you are the only adult aged 18 years or over resident in the property, or
- there are other adults living in the property that are not counted for council tax purposes (For example students)
If someone else in your household is working away from home or taking extended holidays, you are unlikely to qualify for a single person discount.
When an application is received, the information provided may be checked against other records for comparison purposes.
Change of circumstances
You must tell us, within 21 days, about any change in your circumstances which may affect your entitlement to single person discount.
Knowingly providing false information, or not reporting changes, may result in prosecution and a financial penalty being imposed.
