Service summary

Wiltshire Council Logo

If you are a single person, disabled, severely mentally impaired (perhaps with dementia), a carer, or staying long term in hospital, you may be able to apply for a Council Tax discount or exemption.

A full council tax bill assumes that there are at least two adults over 18 living in the property.  However, you may qualify for a council tax percentage of discount or a complete exemption from paying council tax. 

 Not everyone has to pay the full amount of council tax due for the band their property is in. There are discounts that may apply to you. 

Further information

If you think you may qualify for one of these discounts, exemptions or disregards, please download the relevant application form and return it to your local Wiltshire Council office with any evidence required.  

If the council gives you a discount and your circumstances change, you must tell them immediately.
