But what about if you happen to be the only working person in a shared rented house where all the other tennants are students?
Are you stuck with the *entire* council tax bill, as all the other tennants are exempt?
Or can you get some sort of discount? (preferably a decent sized one!)
I've tried a quick google, & found the official site for the Valuation Office ( http://www.voa.gov.uk/council_tax/
), but it seems lacking in the info I want.
I found some other sites, but a quick read through didn't seem to answer my question. All I could find was stuff about students themselves being exempt, & stuff about council tax benefit for people who are on low incomes.
Anyone here know?
I'm not sure myself, but whatever you do, if you end up having to phone the council to ask, make sure you don't give them your address.
