We regularly review council tax accounts which have discounts and exemptions applied to identify fraudulent claims.
Each year local authorities nationwide receive a high volume of applications for discounts. Some of these applications are not genuine and just like benefit cheats these people are claiming reductions in their bills falsely.
If we have sent you a council tax discount review letter, we will need you to confirm your current details by completing the review form. Please use the button below and enter your unique PIN number, which you'll find on the letter we sent you.
If you have any questions regarding the form or require further information see our FAQ page.
Legislation exists which allows council tax cheats to be prosecuted the same way as benefit cheats, through the court system. They are then made to pay back the money they owe. Checks are being made to ensure everyone who claims the discount is genuine.
