Can i claim a discount on council tax. The situation is as follows. I own my own house that wife'kids live in. I work away, home for 6 days a month. I go on ops, currently going to be away for 11 months in the next 18 months (overseas). I pay FERKIN CILOT on my accom at work place. Council said, i'm on the electoral reg for my house (i can change it) and they said i need to re register doc/dentist (told them not registered to the crappy nhs in my town.. tin tarmy) 1 Is there any discount instead of paying full whack for a house i visit! and dont actually live in. 2 This is bledin discrimination. If i wasnt so law abiding then i would declare separated and get single parents etc. arrrhhh. This country sucks!
