Council Tax scams about refunds or reductions

Scams about Council Tax refunds or reductions

There are reports of scams claiming to offer Council Tax refunds, Council Tax Support, or payment reductions. 

Some scams ask for an urgent payment through a website that is not ours. Or, claim to offer a COVID-19 Council Tax Reduction.

These are not genuine.
