Council tax - Student discount/exemption application form

This form should be completed by the liable person. Complete this form if one or more full time students are living in the property and you wish to apply for an exemption or discount on your council tax bill. You are classed as a student for council tax purposes if you are studying full-time for a minimum of 21 hours per week and 24 weeks per year at a recognised educational establishment. In order to qualify for a student exemption a property must be occupied exclusively by full time students. In the event that one of the occupants is not a full-time student then a discount may be applicable. If more than one of the occupants is not a student NO discount can be applied.
