Council tax reductions for carers
When counting the members of a household for the purpose of
council tax, carers can be disregarded.
If the number of adult residents who are not disregarded is
either one or none a discount may apply.
Carers must provide either
- Care or support on behalf of the Crown or a charity or employed
by the person receiving care having been introduced by a charity.
Care must be provided for at least 24 hours a week and payment must
not exceed £44 per week. The carer must be resident in premises
provided by their employer. Or
- Care for a person receiving attendance allowance or equivalent
and live with the person they provide care for. The carer cannot be
the spouse or civil partner of the person receiving care or the
parent if the care recipient is under 18.
