A full council tax bill assumes that there are at least two adults over 18 living in the property. However, you may qualify for a council tax percentage of discount or a complete exemption from paying council tax.

If we give you a discount or exemption on your council tax and your circumstances change, you must tell us immediately.

Discounts

Not everyone has to pay the full amount of council tax due for the band their property is in. There are discounts that may apply to you. If you think you may qualify for one of these discounts, please download the relevant application form and return it to your local Wiltshire Council office with any evidence required.

Property Discounts

A property which is unfurnished and unoccupied may qualify for a discount for a period of up to twelve months.

Annexes occupied by family members may also qualify for a discount.

Exemptions

Some property is exempt from council tax altogether (which means you don’t have to pay council tax). It may be exempt for only a short period, for example, six months, or indefinitely.

Council Tax reduction

If you do not qualify for any council tax discounts or exemptions but are on a low income, you may still qualify for Council Tax reduction
