For example, full-time students do not need to pay council tax at all meaning they could save thousands.
Those who live with students can get a 25 percent discount off council tax.
Britons living alone or with under-18s and live-in carers can get 25 percent off their bills.
There are also reductions available for those with a disability and for carers in many parts of the UK.
This includes those with severe mental impairments, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and strokes.
