You need to tell us about any changes to your circumstances so that we can ensure your council tax bill is correct.
Things you need to tell us include:
- a new address following a house move
- a new name (for instance, after you get married)
- the date someone passed away (if you are dealing with the council tax affairs of someone that’s died)
We need to be told within 21 days about any changes to who is responsible for council tax at a property, or anything that might change whether you are entitled to discounts or exemptions.
If you don’t tell us within 21 days you could receive a £70 penalty charge, which will be added to your council tax bill.
If you receive a penalty but disagree with it, you should contact the council as soon as possible giving your reasons and asking for the penalty to be reconsidered.
Save time, and inform us of these changes using the instructions below.
