A review of residents receiving a single person discount on their council tax is being carried out by Powys County Council.

A resident who is the sole occupier of a property is entitled to a 25 per cent reduction on their council tax and the review will see if the discount scheme is being accurately implemented, or being abused.

Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Finance, Councillor Aled Davies said: “We know the discount scheme is well regarded and provides vital support for individuals and in the majority of cases is being claimed appropriately.

“However, there are a minority who abuse the system and try to get discount that they are not entitled to by not reporting a change in their circumstances. The review, which will see a letter sent to existing claimants asking them to confirm their current circumstances, will help identify those who are no longer entitled to the discount.”
