Wokingham Borough Council announce council tax review0
A review of council tax discounts is due to be carried out soon by Wokingham Borough Council, assisted by an external organisation.
Local authorities have a statutory duty to collect all council tax due, and any relief or discount is only awarded to residents entitled to it.
There are currently nearly 16,000 residents claiming a single person discount. Rather than contacting every resident who currently claims it, Wokingham Borough Council is working with Northgate Public Services carrying out residency checks to more efficiently target those residents whose circumstances differ from those recorded; and therefore may no longer be eligible for the discount.
Any resident who thinks they may no longer be entitled to a council tax discount should contact the borough council on (0118) 974 6022 or email [email protected].
