Council Tax

Did you know as a full-time student you are exempt from paying Council Tax? 

A full 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 25% discount can still be granted. However, if there are two people who are not students, no discount can be granted at all.

You will need to fill out an application form with Leeds City Council to receive your exemption notice.

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

You can get more information regarding Council Tax Exemptions & Discounts on the Leeds City Council’s website (
