Council Tax Discounts
People for whom Child Benefit is payable and school leavers under 20
If you are aged under 18 you will not be treated as resident for council tax purposes.
If you have attained the age of 18 but entitlement to child benefit continues you are still disregarded for council tax purposes. We will require proof that child benefit is still in payment e.g. notification letter or bank statement.
If you are aged 18 or over and under 20 and have finished a full time course of education between 1st April and 1st November you will not be treated as resident for council tax purposes up to and including 31st October. We will require confirmation of the course end date.
