Reasons for the review
Each year local authorities nationwide receive a high volume of applications for single person's discount. Some of these applications are not genuine and like benefit fraud these people are falsely claiming reductions in their bills. Legislation exists which allows council tax fraud to be prosecuted in the same way that benefit fraud is - through the court system and fraudsters are made to pay back the money they owe.
Elmbridge Borough Council is continuing to review discounts which will help identify fraudulent claims among council tax payers who are attempting to cheat the system. Checks will be made to ensure everyone who claims the discount is genuine.
