Beware of Council tax scammers


With annual council tax bills due to land on doormats across Sedgemoor from 11th March, Sedgemoor District Council is warning residents that this is the time of year when scammers can target people. 27/02/19

One current scam that has been brought to the district council's attention is from a company claiming to be called 'claimers' who call on behalf of Sedgemoor District Council and ask for £95 to lower your Council Tax banding. Council Tax bands are set by the Valuation Office Agency and can only be changed under certain conditions. Details can be found at www.gov.uk/council-tax-appeals. You will not be charged for the service.
