Single Person Discount Review

    The local authority has a duty to ensure that any reductions to Council Tax bills are being correctly claimed and that we are made aware if people’s circumstances have changed. If you receive a single person discount, a paper review form will be enclosed with your annual Council Tax bill. Failure to provide the requested information will result in your discount being cancelled and any awarded discount recovered. In addition a £70 penalty will be charged to your account for failure to provide the information. Please also note that the declaration you make about your household status will be cross referenced with other sources of information through credit reference agencies and where false information is provided your discount will be removed and a £70 penalty added to your account. 

    Please complete the online review form which is accessed via our Portal (our online forms no longer support the use of Internet Explorer, please use Chrome or Edge).  If registering for the first time the “register now” link can be found at the bottom of the page, or it can be completed without registering by clicking the ‘anonymous’ link. The review form is only for those already in receipt of Single Person Discount and should only be used for the 2021/2022 review. If you are now responding to the 2020/2021 review you will need to return the paper form sent to you dated 15/01/21 in order to ensure that your Single Person Discount is dealt with correctly.

    The online form will ask you to confirm the name of the liable person and whether your circumstances remain the same or have changed at any time since you were awarded your Single Person Discount.

    How we use your personal information

    The information that you provide will be used by Stafford Borough Council, as the data controller, to update your Council Tax account. We will only share your information, when necessary, with agencies involved in the administration of your Council Tax account, or where the law requires or allows us to.
