Single occupier discount
If you are the only person aged 18 or over living in your home you can apply for a 25% discount on your Council Tax bill.
If you receive Council Tax Support your 25% discount will be taken off the full amount of your Council Tax, and your Council Tax Support entitlement will be worked out again.
How do I apply?
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.
