Single Person Discount Review
We are conducting a review of Council Tax accounts where a 25% Single Person Discount has been applied. This discount can be claimed where there is only one adult aged 18 or over living at a property.
We know most people are claiming this discount correctly. However, sometimes people forget to tell us when the number of adults living in a property changes. This may be because:
- a new partner has moved in
- a new tenant or lodger has moved in
- a relative has moved in
- a child has turned 18
We review to ensure our records are accurate and up to date. You can tell us you are still living alone or that the number of adults living at your address has changed.
The review is managed on our behalf by Datatank Ltd. You will receive a letter and instructions on how to complete and either return the review form to them or respond online.
If you do not respond to the form, a reminder letter will be issued. If this is not returned, it will be assumed that your circumstances have changed and that you are no longer entitled to the discount.
What you should do now

Reviewing claims for discounts
We have a duty to review claims for discounts to ensure your circumstances haven’t changed and you still qualify for this discount.
We have an obligation to protect the public purse and remove discounts that are no longer valid.
Each year local authorities nationwide receive a high volume of applications for Single Person's Discount. Sadly some people are claiming reductions in their bills falsely.
