Oldham Single Person Council Tax Discount

Oldham Council



The single person discount is 25% off your total council tax bill. You can claim single person discount if:

•you are the only adult aged 18 years or over resident in the property, or

•there are other adults living in the property that are not counted for council tax purposes (For example students)

If someone else in your household is working away from home or taking extended holidays, you are unlikely to qualify for a single person discount.
