Single Person Discount Review

About the Single Person Discount Review

Stevenage Borough 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.

Failure to respond to a request for information or providing false information will result in the discount being cancelled and a penalty of £70 being imposed in accordance with Schedule 3 of the Local Government Finance Act 1992.
