    Payment of Council Tax - Empty property - Tax Deductible?

    Perhaps a silly question, but due to the change in the 6 month tax exemption for empty properties we are now being stung for nearly full council tax on it.

    When I fill in the self-assessment for 2013-14 I assume I am allowed to include the cost of council tax as an allowable expense?

    If your property takes more thant 6 months to rent out, it must be in the wrong location. You should move your investment to another property in a better location.

      The OP's point is that there is now no longer a 6-month exemption.

            You can claim the council tax as expenses in box 24 of Form SA105
