A full council tax bill is based on 2 or more adults living in a household. If you are the only person aged 18 or over living in a property, you are entitled to a 'single person discount' of 25%.
To apply please complete the council tax single occupier discount form (PDF 345 kb)
We are currently reviewing the single person discount to ensure that those entitled to receive it continue to do so, whilst also ensuring public money is spent appropriately and fraud is kept to a minimum.
In certain situations, people may be disregarded when counting the number of adult residents. If, after disregarding a person, the number of adults resident remains as one, a 25% discount is given. If all residents are disregarded, a 50% discount is given.
The categories of people who are disregarded are listed below - in a number of the categories conditions apply. Please contact us if you require further information.
If you want to claim for a disregarded person please complete the relevant form below or contact our Customer Contact Centre to discuss on 0300 790 0381.
