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 complete the on-line Single Person Discount Review form which is accessed via our Portal. If registering for the first time the “register now” link can be found at the end of the page. The review form is only for those already in receipt of Single Person Discount.
You will be asked 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. For further information, please see www.staffordbc.gov.uk/PrivacyNotices.
