We are aware of a scam email circulating stating the recipient is entitled to a ‘Council Tax Reduction’ that suggests it has come from GOV.UK.

If you believe you are entitled to a Council Tax reduction please see our website pages on the scheme and how to apply .

As with all emails, please look out for anything that appears suspicious such as the sender’s email address; spelling or grammar errors or asking for bank or card details; if in doubt do not follow any links or provide any information. 

Scam emails can be reported on the Action Fraud website.
