Council Tax relief (Section 13A)


Under Section 16 of the Local Government Finance Act 1992, there is a right of appeal if a customer applying for a discretionary reduction under Section 13A is aggrieved by our decision.

The appeal must be made in writing to the Council Tax office. We will then consider whether the customer has provided any additional information against the required criteria that will justify a change to its decision.

If the original decision is upheld and the customer remains aggrieved, there is a further right of appeal to a valuation tribunal.
