Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Im sure i saw something somewhere whereby you could get free Council Tax for your main residence whilst on ops, was this something they were maybe going to do or are doing !?
  2. This one has been round the houses a few times. Needless to say you have no fukcing chance of not paying council tax unless:

    1. You are going to prison
    2. You live in a quarter and also have a second home that you own but do not rent out (gets 50% discount)

    Many have looked into it - none have succeeded. Have a look at this thread -

  3. Just get the missus to say you've walked out on her. Then be happy and reunited some months later :wink:
  4. That will get you a 25% discount with a letter to the Council saying you no longer reside "In the marital home".

    Then celebrate your making up with a big party in say 6 months time?
