Council tax disability reduction backdating

So the flawed old valuation still dictates much of the kingdom's banding, which is why you could be paying more than your neighbour even though you live in exactly the SAME size property.

People who are severely mentally impaired are not included when working out Council Tax.

You also are not included if you’re a live-in carer looking after someone who is not your partner, spouse, or child under 18. You may be eligible for the scheme if you live in a larger property than you would need if you or another occupant were not disabled.
