Council Tax: disregard categories

Council Tax disregarded persons

How Council Tax is calculated

The Council Tax charge is based upon the number of people living in a dwelling. If you are 'disregarded' it means that we do not count you when we work out the number of people living in there.

When counting the number of people living in a dwelling, if there is just one person living there, a 25% discount may be granted. If all the residents at a dwelling are 'disregarded' a 50% discount may be granted.

Disregard-qualified groups

As well as the disregard groups listed above, we also offer exemptions for people with severe mental impairment.
