Council Tax is the system of local taxation charged to all residents in the UK by the Local Government Councils to part fund local public services such as waste disposal, policing, fire service, schools etc. Council Tax charges are based on the value of your property and consider the number and type of occupants.
Full time students usually do not have to pay the Council Tax. If you live alone or in a household where everyone is either a student then you will not need to pay any Council Tax as the property will be 'exempt' and there will be no bill for the dwelling.
You can request a Council Tax Exemption Letter from your Student Hub and then give it to your local Council office.
