Council tax is a system of local taxation collected by local authorities. It is a tax on domestic property. Some property is exempt from council tax. Some people do not have to pay council tax and some people get a discount.
Properties exempt from council tax
Some property is exempt from council tax altogether. It may be exempt for only a short period, for example, six months, or indefinitely.
Properties which may be exempt include:
•condemned property
•property which has been legally re-possessed by a mortgage lender
•property unoccupied because the person who lived there now lives elsewhere because they need to be cared for, for example, in hospital, in a care home or with relatives
•property which is unoccupied because the person who lived there has gone to care for someone else
•Any property that only students or Foreign Language Assistants on the official British Council programmed live in. This may be a hall of residence, or a house. If the property is occupied by both students and non-students the property is not exempt but any students in the house are disregarded
•a holiday caravan or boat if it's on a property where council tax is paid
•a property where all the people who live in it are aged under 18
•property which is occupied only by people with severe mental impairment
•A self-contained ‘granny flat’ where the person who lives in it is a dependent relative of the owner of the main property.
