Council Tax - Disabled Band Reductions
The Council may give a band reduction in order to recalculate the amount of council tax payable if a permanently disabled person lives in a dwelling with certain features which are essential or of major importance to the well being of the disabled person.
You may be eligible for a reduction if your property is the sole/main residence of someone who is permanently disabled. It must also have one of these facilities:
- A room (not a bathroom, kitchen or lavatory) mainly used to meet the needs of a disabled resident.
- An additional bathroom or kitchen used to meet the needs of a disabled resident.
- Enough floor space for a wheelchair used by the disabled person when indoors.
The above facilities must be essential or of major importance to the disabled resident by reason of the nature and extent of their disability. If you do qualify for this reduction you will pay the Council Tax as if your property were in the next lowest property Band.
