Single person discount review

Report a change in circumstances

Council tax payers across Tamworth Borough Council who receive a 25 per cent reduction on their bill as single occupancy residents will be checked from time to time, to make sure their reductions are correct.

The review forms part of the council’s measures to prevent and detect fraud and protect the public purse.

We have appointed third parties to carry out a comprehensive review. They will work with credit reference agencies and others, using data-matching technology to identify where people are possibly claiming a discount on their Council Tax to which they are not entitled.
