Council tax exemption for care leavers

Harrow Care Leavers will be exempt from paying Council tax until their 25th Birthday. The exemption will apply after all the usual discounts, exemptions and rebates have been used.

This is not an exemption in the normal sense of the word, as Children Services will make a fund transfer to cover the Council Tax so no adjustment will be shown on Council Tax bills issued to reduce the amount due.

For the full details and eligibility criteria, see Harrow Care Leaver Policy.
