Online forms: Application for discount or exemption for long term hospital patients
If a property is left empty by someone who has been in hospital for a long time, such property is exempt from council tax. Also, when counting the number of adults living in a property, such person would not be included. This exemption does not apply in cases where someone has a short stay in hospital.
To complete this form you will need:
- The date of admission to hospital
