Council Tax

Did you know if you are a full-time student you may be exempt from paying Council Tax or entitled to a discount? 

An exemption can only be granted if all the people living in a property are full-time students. Leeds City Council requires the details of the students living in the property before they can provide you with an exemption notice. If you are in a mixed household and there is one person who is not a student, a discount may still be granted. However, if there are two people or more who are not students, no discount will be granted.

To apply for a discount or exemption click here, this will direct you to the Leeds City Council’s website, click ‘apply’ and simply fill out your details. Only one application is needed per household.

You can get more information regarding Council Tax exemptions and discounts on the Leeds City Council’s website (
