Council Tax and members of religious communities

If you are a member of a religious community and apart from you there is only one adult living in your home, you can apply for a 25% discount on your Council Tax.

A person is a member of a religious community if:

  • the main occupation of the religious community consists of prayer, contemplation, education, the relief of suffering, or a range of these; and
  • he or she has no income or capital of his or her own (with the exception of any occupational pension due to former employment) and is dependent on the religious community for his or her material needs.

If you think this discount may apply to you, please contact us.
