Council Tax change of circumstances
You must tell us about any change in your circumstances that may affect your Council Tax so we can make sure your Council Tax is right.
Where the change might affect how much Council Tax you pay, you might pay too much if you don’t tell us immediately. Or you might not pay enough, and have to pay the extra later all in one go.
The law says you must tell us within 21 days of the change. If it’s already been longer than 21 days, you should tell us straightaway.
How to tell the Council Tax team about changes of circumstance
If someone else is helping you sort out your Council Tax, you can give us permission to talk to them by signing our authority to disclose form (PDF, 151KB)
What happens next when you tell us about a change of circumstance
We'll send you a new Council Tax bill confirming the new details. We’ll let you know within 20 working days if the amount you need to pay changes. It might take longer if we need to ask you for more information.
