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.
