Fair processing notice 

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

Council tax data will be provided to the Audit Commission for NFI and will be used for cross-authority comparison for the prevention and detection of fraud. Our privacy policy gives more information.

Annual reviews

We're obliged to take reasonable steps to ensure that any discounts, disregards, reductions and exemptions continue to be applied correctly and as such will conduct 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've received a review form please complete, sign and return it to us (with any supporting evidence requested) as soon as you can, ensuring that 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
