Should I be billed for the full annual charge?
We always assume that two or more people over 18 live in your property and we base your council tax bill on this. However you should tell us if:
- you live alone; or
- your property is empty; or
- you think that only one person at the property should be counted for council tax
so that we can check if you can get money off your bill.
Some empty properties and second homes can briefly attract a discount on council tax.
Certain types of occupied properties can be exempt from council tax. It depends who lives there.
If you have a low income you may be entitled to Council Tax Support to help you pay your council tax.
