Care leavers - council tax
If you’re a care leaver, you don’t have to pay council tax if you have moved into a home where you are the only person responsible for paying.
If you’ve moved into a home where other people live and they aren’t care leavers, you can get a discount on the council tax, but how much will depend on the circumstances.
If you’re not sure whether you are a care leaver read our leaving care section.
