COUNCIL TAX DISCOUNT APPLICATION
(PERSONS RESIDING IN HOSPITAL OR A NURSING/RESIDENTIAL CARE HOME)
Name and Address of Taxpayer Council Tax Account Number:
WHAT ARE DISCOUNTS?
The Council Tax assumes that two adults live in your home.
If only one adult lives in a property a discount of 25% (one quarter) will be given.
In some cases, even if there are two or more people aged 18 or over living in a
property, a discount of up to 50% (one half) may still be given. This is because
certain people are not counted when deciding how many adults live in a property.
If two adults live in a property and one is not counted a 25% discount will be
given. If all the adults are not counted a discount of 50% will be given.
When someone is not counted this means that they are ‘disregarded’ for Council
Tax discount purposes.
A person will be disregarded for Council Tax discount purposes if they reside in a
Hospital or Nursing/Residential Care Home.
