Waverley Borough Council is reviewing all single person discounts on Council Tax given to residents who are the only adult occupant in a property.

The council will be sending a letter to some residents who receive the 25% discount to ask them to confirm or update the information we have about their circumstances, particularly where their circumstances have changed.

Ged Hall, Portfolio Holder for Finance, said: “While many people pay the right amount of Council Tax there are a minority who attempt to wrongly claim a discount.

“We take Council Tax fraud very seriously and make sure that discounts are given to the people who need it most. The review will ensure that the right people receive the discount and will help keep Council Tax as low as possible for residents.”
