Discounts for Armed Forces Personnel
With effect from the 1st of April 2010 the Welsh Assembly Government has passed legislation so that armed forces personnel who are required to live in accommodation provided by the Ministry of Defence to perform the duties of their office come within the definition of those with job-related dwellings.
This means that where those persons also have a second home in Wales for which they are liable to pay council tax, the billing authority for the area within which the second home is situated is prevented from reducing the discount on that dwelling from 50%.
Any council tax payer who believes that they may qualify for this discount should contact the Council Tax office at:
PO Box 1
