More about the Single Person's Discount review

Craven District Council is continuing to review discounts which will help identify fraudulent claims among Council Tax payers who are attempting to cheat the system.

Each year local authorities nationwide receive a high volume of applications for Single Person's Discount. Sadly, some of these applications are not genuine and just like benefit cheats, these people are claiming reductions in their bills falsely.

Legislation exists which allows Council Tax cheats to be prosecuted in the same way that benefit cheats are; through the court system and made to pay back the money they owe.

Checks will be made to ensure everyone who claims the discount is genuine. However, occasionally circumstances may not be so easy to explain.

To help in these situations we have included the most frequently asked questions that can arise throughout this review period.
