Council tax discounts

Single person discount

The full council tax bill is based on having two adults living in a property. The bill is not increased if there are more than two adults living there, but can be reduced if there is only one.

If only one adult lives in a property, the bill is reduced by 25 per cent. You can claim a single person discount by sending us a signed and dated written statement that you are the only adult living in the property and wish to claim the discount.

When looking at the number of adults living in a property, certain people are not counted (disregarded). If people in a property are disregarded, a 25 per cent or even a 50 per cent discount can be granted even if more than one person lives there.
