Council Tax discounts and reductions

Council Tax reductions for disabled people

If you or any member of your household is disabled, you may qualify for a reduction in your Council Tax. Your home would need to contain at least one of these features:

  • A second bathroom or kitchen that is required for meeting the needs of the disabled person
  • A room set aside to provide facilities for the disabled person 
  • Sufficient indoor space for the disabled person to use a wheelchair

The amount of Council Tax you pay will reduce to the amount due for the band below your property's normal band. You can also receive a reduction if your property is in Band A. See: Your Council Tax property band and charges
