Religious communities

People living in a religious community may be disregarded for council tax purposes.

This means they will not be included when we count the number of occupants living in their community.

To be disregarded, they must be living in a community where the main occupation is:

  • prayer
  • contemplation
  • education
  • the relief of suffering

Each person must have no income (with the exception of any occupational pension from former employment), nor any capital of their own. They must be dependent on the community for all their material needs.

If you think a member of your household should be disregarded contact the council tax team.
