Find out if you may be entitled to money off your bill

Disregarded adults

Some people are not counted ('disregarded') when working out how many people live in your home.

This means you might be able to apply for a discount on your Council Tax bill.

You're disregarded if you're:

  • under 18 years old
  • on certain apprentice schemes
  • 18 or 19 years old and in full-time education
  • a full-time student¬†at college or university
  • under 25 years old and get funding from the Education and Skills Funding Agency
  • a student nurse
  • a foreign language assistant registered with the British Council
  • severely mentally impaired
  • a live-in carer for someone who is not your partner, spouse, or child under 18
  • a diplomat

Discount levels:

  • if all adults are disregarded, there's a 50% discount
  • if all but one adult is disregarded, there's a 25% discount
  • if there are two of more adults who are not disregarded, there is no discount

If you're awarded this discount, it will stay on your account until there's a change to your circumstances which means you're no longer entitled.

How to apply

Send your completed form to localtaxation@rutland.gov.uk or post to: Local Taxation, Rutland County Council, Catmose, Oakham, Rutland LE15 6HP.
