Single person discount
If you're the only person over 18 in your home, you may be entitled to claim a 25% reduction in your council tax bill.
If you make any changes to your circumstances or payment methods after 2 March 2018, we will be aware of the changes but they won't show up in your annual bill.
This is because we're currently in the process of issuing the annual bills and unable to add any changes.
You'll be sent an up to date bill after 5 April 2018.
To qualify for the discount you must have already registered with us to pay council tax in Bristol.
You'll need your council tax account number.
After you've applied
After you’ve applied you must still pay the amount on your council tax bill until you hear from us.
If we don't give you the discount and you think we should have you can appeal by contacting us.
We'll check every year that you're still entitled to the discount. We may cancel your discount if you don't reply when we contact you.
Tell us about a change
If you no longer qualify for a single person discount let us know.
You’ll need your:
- council tax account number
- the date you want to cancel your discount from
You may have to pay a fine if you don’t tell us.
