After I graduated I recieved a council tax bill for the year after graduation.

 

I have letter from my University saying I left at the end of June (end of term). The council tax bill starts in April.

 

Am I right in thinking that I can claim student exemption for part of the year ie Months April, May, June. 3 Months?

 

This would be a 25% reduction on a 12 month bill?

 

Or can you only have council tax exemption for an entire year?

Hi soma

 

Not sure about that! I think, they will give you a pro-rata discount for the months you are 'officially' still a student ie end of June. I think when you hand in the letter from your Uni to your council, they work it out from that.

 

Good luck

Providing the course lasted at least 24 weeks of an academic year and it was for more than 21 hrs per week then you are a student up until the day the course ends and claim your exemption until that date.

my council has tried a similar trick. you are taxed on a daily basis per s.2(1) Local Government Finance Act 1992. have them change the start of the taxable period to the date you finish your course - graduation in most cases.
