Religious community discount

You get money off your council tax bill if all the following are true and other criteria are met:

  • You live in a religious community (the principal occupation of which must consist of prayer, contemplation, education, the relief of suffering or any combination of these) 
  • You have no income or capital of your own (we will ignore any pension from a former job) 
  • You are dependent on the community for your material needs
