Council tax review is now underway

Dumfries and Galloway Council is reviewing how much Council Tax each resident pays.

The Council is committed to keeping council tax to a minimum level by making sure that everyone receives the discounts they are entitled to. The review will ensure that customers who are entitled to the discount continue to receive it, and that it is cancelled where necessary.

Households with only one person over the age of 18 are eligible for the reduction and more than 24,000 residents currently claim the single occupant discount.

Discount review forms will be posted to households currently in receipt of the reduction.

Those who think they may be eligible but have not yet applied are urged to apply online at www.dumgal.gov.uk/counciltax or alternatively contact the Council on 030 33 33 3005.
