Council tax exemption for care leavers
You may be entitled to a 100% discount on your council tax demand notice - meaning that 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 Hinckley & Bosworth
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.
How to apply
Complete our online form. You will need an online account:
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.
