About the Single Person's Discount review
East Herts District Council is committed to keeping council tax to a minimum level by:
· Making sure that everyone receives the discounts they are entitled to; and
· Making sure that discounts are awarded to the appropriate people
It is important that your council tax record is kept up to date so that bills are issued accurately with any changes of circumstance being taken into account.
In order to continue to receive the discount you receive are required to confirm that your circumstances have not changed or you need to tell us about any other people that live at your address.
If you know anybody who is claiming this discount fraudulently please tell us as the Council will seek to prosecute anyone committing fraud.
