Disabled Band Reductions
If there is a disabled person living in the property, you may be able to claim a reduction in the amount of council tax that they pay. If certain conditions are met, the council tax bill could be reduced to that of a property in the next lowest band. For a reduction to be made the disabled person must:
- Live in the property but does not have to be the person liable to pay the council tax bill
- Use a wheelchair or a second bathroom or kitchen or an additional room in the property; this room must be essential or of major importance to the well-being of the disabled person because of the nature or extent of his or her disability
If you have adapted your property for a disabled member of your household you may qualify for a reduction.
