If one or more of the occupants of a property is an adult for whom child benefit is still payable, a 25% discount may apply because he/she is disregarded for Council Tax purposes.
No discount applies if two or more people other than the adult for whom child benefit is still payable (or any other adults who are not counted) live in the property.
A person is not counted for Council Tax purposes if he/she:
- is 18 years old;
- is a person in respect of whom another person is entitled to Child Benefit, or would be so entitled but for paragraph 1 of Schedule 9 to the Social Security Contributions and Benefits Act 1992.
