Tax relief and benefits when hospitalised

A full council tax charge assumes that there are two adults (aged 18 or over) living in a household. 

  • If only one adult lives in your household, there is a 25% discount due. 
  • If the property is unoccupied an exemption may be due - this means no council tax is payable.

People in long tern care or hospital are not included with adults when working out a discount, e.g. a house occupied by one person when their partner's main residence is in care or in hospital, would receive the 25% discount.
