Council Tax is a property tax with a personal element that contributes towards the financing of local government services.
It is payable on all domestic properties within the Harborough District Council area of which there are approximately 32,500.
Council Tax has two elements:
50% is the property charge and
50% is the personal element, based on two adult residents
If there is only one adult resident, a discount of 25% will apply. The amount of Council Tax payable will be 75% of the full charge amount for the Band (i.e. the 50% property element plus the 25% first adult element).
If a property has two or more adult residents, the amount payable will be 100% of the amount for the Band (i.e. the 50% property element plus both adult elements).
In deciding whether a discount applies certain people may be disregarded when counting the number of people in the property.
