Document Library: EIA Section 13a Discretionary Relief

Summary
Where a person is liable to pay council tax, the Isle of Wight Council has powers to reduce liability in relation to individual cases or class(es) that it may determine and where national discounts and exemption cannot be applied. The council will consider using its powers for any council tax payer in exceptional circumstances, where there is evidence of financial hardship or personal circumstances that justify a reduction in council tax liability.

There are financial implications to awarding any discounts other than those currently available under statutory legislation and the financial burden of Section 13a discounts has to be met through an increase in the general level of council tax for other payers.
