We're required under Section 6 of the Audit Commission Act 1998 to participate in the National Fraud Initiative (NFI) data-matching exercise.

Annual Reviews

We are obliged to take reasonable steps to ensure that any discounts, disregards, reductions and exemptions continue to be applied correctly and as such are currently conducting an annual review.  If you haven’t already received a review form or contact from the council tax team, you may do soon. 

Unfortunately we can’t take details over the phone, so if you have received a review form, please complete and return it to us (with any supporting evidence requested) as soon as you can ensuring you include any changes that may affect your continued entitlement.

You don’t have to return the form in the post, you can scan it or take a legible picture of the completed and signed form and email it to council.tax@shropshire.gov.uk
