Council Tax - discounts for people

Careworkers and carers

The initial Council Tax bill for a property assumes there are at least 2 residents aged 18 or over. A full charge for Council Tax, Water and Waste Water is then applied.

Certain people are not included ("disregarded") as occupiers for the purposes of calculating Council Tax and include the following:

  • Care workers provided by a charity or local authority for at least 24 hours per week
  • People caring for someone with a disability who is not their partner or child under 18 (they must provide care for at least 35 hours per week)
