Council tax and housing benefit
Hi, I've just claimed council tax reduction and housing benefit after living off a small inheritance and my carers allowance for a while, problem is before they will look at my claim I have to send original receipts for everything, some are online purchases and I don't know if they will accept a print out of them as they say copies are not accepted, also will they want my food shopping receipts too, there is no phone number for me to ask them either, any advice would be much appreciated
