Single Person Discount Review

Please confirm your Single Person Discount Status

We are required to review council tax discounts because sometimes due to an oversight, people do not update us when the number of adults living at their address changes. Also, some single person discount claims may be fraudulent, and therefore must be reviewed.

Please complete this form to advise of any changes, or to confirm if you are still entitled to the discount. FAQ's to help you complete this form can be found on our website. Please note, the form requests contact details, though these are not mandatory. If supplied, contact details will only be used if we need to contact you regarding your council tax account.
