Council tax discount: an adult in prison


When a person is in prison (or detained elsewhere), they may be able to apply for a 25% council tax discount if one person remains in the property or an exemption if the property is empty, this is whether it is furnished or not.

If the person is in prison because they haven't paid their council tax, they wouldn't be able to apply for a discount or exemption.


You would need to print off, complete and post back the form to us, on behalf of the person in prison.
