Discounts for people with disabilities
Disabled band reduction
If you or someone you live with is permanently disabled, you may be eligible for a discount.
You must be able to show one of the following:
- the person with a disability uses a wheelchair inside your home
- you need an extra bathroom or kitchen to meet the needs of the person with a disability
- you need a room other than a bathroom, kitchen or toilet to meet the specific needs of the person with a disability.
If eligible, your Council Tax is charged at the rate of the property band below it. For example, property in band D is charged at the rate of band C.
Properties in band A will get a reduction of one ninth of band D. Find your council tax property band.
Severely Mentally Impaired (SMI)
You may be able to get a discount if you or someone you live with is medically certified as having a severe impairment of intelligence and social functioning.
If you live alone and have a severe mental impairment, you don't have to pay Council Tax and should apply for a disregard.
