Martin said: “If someone has a diagnosed SMI, which includes some with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, strokes and more, they don’t have to pay council tax if they live alone, and get 25 percent off if they live with one other grown-up.”
Those who live in a larger property so they have extra room for treatments or equipment storage may also be able to drop a council tax band.
Who you live with
Homeowners can receive a discount depending on who is in the household and what their age and occupation is.
Students do not need to pay council tax and those living with a student can get a tax discount of 25 percent per household.
Britons who live alone or with under-18s and live-in carers also get a 25 percent discount.
