What we need from you
We will ask you to register for a MyDoncaster account if you haven’t already. This will allow you to track your enquiry, and for us to tell you the outcome of your request. You will also be able to access additional online services offered by us.
You will need your Council Tax account and Property Reference number to submit your request. These can be found on your bill.
We will ask you to supply details about your charitable organisation and the previous occupants of the property.
You will also be asked to supply proof of your charitable status, and a copy of your Governing Documents. These can be uploaded as part of this form, or supplied later. If you do not supply the required evidence, this may cause a delay to your application being processed.
What you should expect from us
Once submitted, we will decide if you are entitled to an exemption within 14 days. We may need to contact you if we cannot give you an exemption, or if further information is required to process your application. If your application is successful, you will be issued with a new Council Tax bill showing your reduction.
The Council is committed to meeting its data protection obligations and handling your information securely. You should make sure you read and understand the Council Tax privacy notice, which sets out what you need to know about how Doncaster Council will use your information in the course of our work.
