Preventing fraud entering the benefit system
Council Tax and Council Tax Reduction Fraud
We take fraud seriously and we will investigate allegations relating to Council Tax and/or Council Tax Reduction. These allegations could originate from members of the public, officers and members of the council or other government departments.
If you suspect someone is claiming benefit to which they're not entitled, please let us know. You can remain anonymous, although it would be helpful to take your name and phone number in case we need more information at a later date. Any information that you provide will remain strictly confidential and we will not give your name to anyone else.
