    Thanks poppy you probably have answered you have helped so much it was only because I received a letter saying carers this could effect council tax reduction 
    Thanks poppy enjoy your day ?

    You're welcome.

    This will be because the carers allowance is taxable income, so your daughter needs to be aware of that. I claim carers allowance for looking after my daughter but my council tax reduction isn't affected by this.Although all local council have their own criteria for council tax reduction.

    Thank you and you too :)
