Increase discount on Council Tax for single people

Comment 2nd July 2010

Local Government Finance Act 1992.  Council tax is based on 2 adults living in a dwelling.

However, the single person's discount is only 25% leaving them to pay a disproportionate share of the 2-adult cost. I believe the discount for a single adult should be 50% of the 2-adult cost.

Why does this matter?

This government speaks of a fairer society and I believe this amendment to the Local Government Finance Act would make it fairer for all council tax payers.
