Single person discount

You are entitled to a 25 per cent discount on the Council Tax on your home if you're the only person over the age of 18 who lives in your home and it's your sole or main residence. Sometimes you can still claim a single person discount even if other people live with you. This happens when the other person or people who live in the household are disregarded - or aren't counted.

You must tell us within 21 days of any change that may affect your entitlement to this discount. To falsely claim a discount is a criminal offence.
