Council Tax Disregards

Disregards

Certain personal circumstances can mean that some adults in your household can be disregarded (not counted) for Council Tax purposes. If all but one adult qualify for a disregard, a 25% reduction in Council Tax is awarded. If more than one adult does not qualify for a disregard however, the 25% reduction cannot be awarded.

If all the adults qualify to be disregarded then a 50% reduction can be applied (except when all the adults are students, or are severely mentally impaired, when a suitable 100% exemption can be applied, or where all the adults are Young Care Leavers a 100% discount can be applied.)

For all other exemptions, go to MySouthend to complete the Cancel a Discount/Exemption form.

If you are no longer entitled to an exemption you will need to go to MySouthend to complete the Cancel a Discount/Exemption form.
