From 1 April 2019 if you are under 25 years of age and have previously been in Local Authority care (‘looked after’), we may be able to reduce the amount of council tax you have to pay by awarding a discretionary council tax discount from 1 April 2019.
To be awarded a reduction you must be:
• A care leaver who has previously been in the care of a Local Authority for at least 13 weeks since the age of 14 and in care on your 16th birthday
• Resident in the Babergh or Mid Suffolk District Council area
• Under 25 years old
We may be able to reduce your Council Tax bill by 25%, 50% or 100% depending on how many other adults live in the property and if they qualify for any other reductions.
If you would like to discuss the council tax reduction or discount criteria, please contact customer services via email or phone 01473 433911 (Mon-Fri 0845-1645)
