Council Tax Reduction - Verification of documents

Last Updated:

Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council need to verify documents to prevent fraud and error and ensure that we give you the correct amount of Council Tax Reduction.

How To Provide Supporting Evidence For Your Housing Benefit/Council tax Reduction Claim During Covid-19 Restrictions

Documents and screenshots can be submitted via email to benefits@tmbc.gov.uk

Please ensure the Subject of your email is “Benefits Evidence.” Your email should then start with your name, address and claim number if known. You should then tell us what you are providing.

If you are unable to provide supporting evidence via email, you can post documents to:

The Benefits Section, TMBC, Gibson Building, Gibson Drive, Kings Hill, ME19 4LZ

Please ensure correct postage is paid to prevent document loss. You can also place enveloped documents in our letterbox at our Kings Hill office only. For both postal methods, please ensure envelopes contain details of name, address and claim number if known and state “Benefits Evidence” .

Do not provide valuables such as passports and birth certificates by post.

Documents will be returned by post, but there may be a delay during restricted movement.

Other information

Council Tax Reduction is means-tested and you must therefore be prepared to provide all details regarding income and capital to support your application.

The application form also requests information regarding other members of your household (called non-dependants) and details of their income and capital.
