Disabled person's band reduction
A reduction in Council Tax may be possible if any resident is disabled and any one of the undernoted facilities exist within the house to meet his or her needs:
- an additional bathroom or kitchen
- a room used predominantly by the disabled person
- use within the house of a wheelchair by the disabled person
The reduction takes the form of a drop in valuation band from, for example, "C" to "B", and is available to everyone regardless of income.
The maximum reduction available for each valuation band for 2012/2013 is shown below.
