Single person council tax discount

posted 31 Jul 2017, 08:46 by lewknorparish@hotmail.co.uk

South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District Councils are urging anyone who is currently claiming a 25 per cent single person discount on their council tax to get in touch if they now have others living with them.

The councils are carrying out checks to ensure that only those entitled to the discount are receiving it, and to help in their efforts to prevent and detect fraud and protect the public purse.

The review will see the councils working with credit reference agencies to check people’s eligibility for the discount and ensure that all records are up to date. This may also involve writing out to taxpayers for further clarification.

Anyone who thinks they may no longer be entitled, or anyone who thinks they are eligible but not currently claiming their discount, should get in touch:
