Single Person Discount

 

When you live alone, or are the only person over 18 who has their sole or main residence at your address, you are entitled to a 25% Single Person Discount. 

 

To claim this discount, please complete our online form.

 

If you are already claiming a single person discount and another adult moves in with you, or someone in your household reaches the age of 18, you will no longer be entitled to a single person's discount.

 

If this happens, you need to let us know and you can do this by using our online form.

 

Single Person Discount reviews

 

To make sure you're paying the right level of council tax we regularly review all of the homes which are claiming a single person discount.

 

Reviewing these discounts helps us identify any households claiming where they shouldn't, targeting those who are committing fraud, and making sure your council tax is going straight to providing services for your families and communities.

 

If you think you might be claiming where you shouldn't, tell us now and we can help you with a repayment plan for any back-dated amounts that you might owe.

 

Reviews are undertaken in partnership with Northgate Public Services. More information on this can be found by clicking here.

 

South Staffordshire Council also participates in the National Fraud Initiative (NFI) which is data matching exercise run by the Cabinet Office to identify fraudulent and erroneous payments from the public purse.
