What is Second Adult Rebate?
To qualify for Second Adult Rebate you must be the person responsible for paying the Council Tax and the other adult must be on a low income and at least 18 years old. It does not apply if the other adult is your partner, is liable for Council Tax themselves or is renting from you.
Depending on the income of the second adult you could receive up to 25% towards the cost of your Council Tax liability charge. Any Second Adult Rebate awarded is paid directly to your Council Tax account, you will then receive a bill from the Council Tax department for the remaining balance.
Second Adult Rebate can be claimed by completing our abbreviated Second adult Rebate application form.
