Other exemptions and disregards

Care leaver discount

From 1 April 2019 you may be entitled to 100 percent discount on your council tax demand notice, so you pay nothing, if you:

  • Are a care leaver aged between 18 and 25
  • Are liable for council tax, or a share of council tax, on a property within Harborough

If this applies to you, you will still need to apply for any other reduction you may be entitled to such as:

  • Student discount or exemption
  • Single person discount
  • Council tax reduction

but we will top up your entitlement with a care leaver discount so you will not have to pay council tax until you reach your 25th birthday.

We will inform you once the discount has been agreed. It is important to keep paying your council tax while you are waiting to hear the outcome of your application.
