Council Tax discount

You can get a discount if a person who normally lives at this address is:

  • On remand, or in prison for a crime other than non-payment of Council Tax or of a fine
  • Being held in a hospital or other place on mental health grounds as a result of a court order
  • Being held under immigration law

You cannot get the discount if the person is in police custody before a first appearance in court.

A person who leaves a property empty whilst detained in a prison, a hospital or other place of detention may be eligible for an exemption (so there will be no Council Tax to pay at all).
