Please visit Apply for a Discount, Exemption or Disregard.
To be counted as a carer and qualify for this discount you must provide care for another household resident, for a minimum of 35 hours per week.
The person receiving care must also be in receipt of one of the following allowances:
It is possible for more than one adult to be counted as caring for the same person, provided all the conditions set out above are met.
For example, two parents could be caring for an adult son or daughter.
You should continue to pay the instalments shown on the Council Tax bill until a decision is made.
We will verify the conditions of entitlement to the discount and if the Council Tax is reduced, a new bill will be issued. If you are due a refund of Council Tax you have already paid, this will be arranged.
