Council Tax discount for people with disabilities

Council Tax discount for people with disabilities

Your Council Tax bill may be reduced so that you pay a band lower than your property is in. For example, if your property is in band E you will pay the charge for a property in band D.  

If your property is already in band A, the lowest band, your bill is reduced by one ninth of the band D charge for your area. 

Who can apply

To qualify for a disabled band reduction, there must be:

  • At least 1 disabled person permanently resident at the property 

And at least one of the below: 

  • A special room used specifically to meet the needs of the disabled person 
  • A second bathroom or kitchen used specifically to meet the needs of the disabled person
  • Enough space so that a wheelchair can be and is used in your home every day
