Notice: Cost of Living Support Scheme

Find out if you can get a Council Tax reduction

You may be able to claim a reduction, an exemption or a discount on Council Tax, e.g. if a house is empty or if the person living there is disabled.

The Welsh Government have created an eligibility checker to help you find out if you are entitled to pay less council tax.


Under Section 13A of the Local Government Finance Act 1992, inserted by section 76 of the Local Government Act 2003, the Council may reduce the amount of Council Tax you are required to pay. The Council may reduce the amount of Council Tax in an individual case or in a class of cases where national discounts and exemptions do not apply.

If you are on a low income

If you are on a low income, we can reduce your council tax bill. You can also get other help too.

Discounts and reductions (People)

Council Tax is based on 2 or more eligible adults living in the same home. Tell us about any other situation so that we can make sure you only pay the right amount of Council tax.

Discounts and exemptions on properties

Uninhabited, unfurnished, empty, or uninhabitable properties may be exempt from Council Tax. Specific types of properties are also exempt when they are dedicated solely to a special purpose.
