Single occupancy discount
If only one adult (aged 18 or over) lives in the property, providing it is his/her sole or main residence, there will be a discount of 25%.
Reviews are carried out to ensure continued entitlement to this discount. The council works with credit reference agencies to check out the claims as part of a drive against council tax fraud. People who may be incorrectly claiming or who are unsure if they are due a discount should contact Monmouthshire County Council.
Reduction for people with disabilities
If someone in your home needs and uses an extra room or extra space because of a disability, you may be able to get a reduction in your bill. You will be charged as if your home was in a lower valuation band.
New regulations give councils discretion to reduce the amount of council tax payable in special circumstances where there is particular hardship. (e.g. following flood or fire damage.)
For further advice or information, please contact the council.
