Richmondshire District Council

Refund scams

We are aware of a number of council tax refund scams that are currently operating around the district. Someone may telephone you, or appear at your door, claiming to be able to reduce your council tax bill.

They may use a number of tactics to get you to part with your money including asking for money up front, asking for your bank details, claiming that they are from the Valuation Office Agency or that you must have an agent representing you to appeal against your banding.

You can check and appeal your council tax band free of charge. For more information visit theĀ GOV.UK page on council tax and business rates scams.
