Council tax

Foster carers exemption

From 1 April 2018, all approved foster carers that live in Islington, including those who foster through the Shared Lives scheme, do not have to pay council tax in Islington. 

If you are a foster carer and your household does not receive a zero balance bill for 2018 and subsequent years, please complete the form at the bottom of this page and send it back to us. 

For support and advice on applying for council tax discounts, or if you are a foster care and your household receives a council tax bill, please email claimit@islington.gov.uk or call 020 7527 2633.
