Council Tax Support Fraud

Council Tax Support fraud will occur, where

  • Someone claims making a false statement about their circumstances e.g. not telling us of all the income that household receives or where a partner is living in that home, or
  • Failing to report a change in their circumstances, e.g. where someone starts work or has a partner who works moving into their home.
