Carers Excemption from Council Tax

Options
Good Afternoon, hope everyone is all safe and well! 

Just a quick post to ask a general question out of curiosity.

Why does council tax disregard a friend who is a carer, as to suppose to a partner who is a carer?

    I would suppose because a partner would be living in the property whether they were a carer or not, whereas a friend would only be living there if they were a carer.
    If you are querying your Council Tax band would you please state whether you are in England, Scotland or Wales

    Yes absolutely, this is what I assumed which essentially makes sense however, in a modern day world sometimes a partner lives seperately and moves in to look after a partner. It's quite confusing. Thanks so much for your reply have a wonderful day!
