We will shortly be writing to residents who receive the Single Person Discount asking them to detail their current circumstances. This will let residents notify us if there has been a change in their circumstances and help us to keep our records up to date.
If there is only 1 adult living in a property they may claim a 25% discount on their Council Tax bill. However councils have a duty to collect Council Tax correctly from every household and to ensure that the households claiming discounts are entitled to them.
Anyone who receives a letter must follow the instructions requested, if you fail to do so, Council Tax discount will be removed.
If you are unable to complete the on-line declaration, you can call 01259 696016. The operator will ask for your account number, you can then provide your declaration over the telephone.
Alternatively you can complete the paper form and return to: Single Person Discount Review, PO Box 152, Twickenham TW2 6XZ.
