Council TAX..
« on: May 12, 2017, 10:46:52 AM »
I, was informed some time ago, that the make up of our council taxes, includes an amount to cover the amounts that the council didn't collect last year.  I asked the council for confirmation of this fact, and today, after many requests, I have received a reply from the leader, which he states the collection rate o other councils, also says that this council is better than most, but then fails to even answer the question I asked, I was surprised he didn't use his usual quote, 'matter closed', but hey, we all have big pockets to pay off their incompetence...    :WTF:

Well of course it's going to include an amount to cover any shortfall. 

Some will be due to people not paying their CT, and some will be due to expected monies not coming in because a household becomes CT exempt or entitled to a discount.  Here's a list of all the different exemptions https://www.swindon.gov.uk/info/20020/council_tax/18/council_tax_exemptions

I can understand if someone is exempt due to disability etc, but if someone fails to pay, then they should be taken to court and the money retracted that way, no way should we have to pay for defaulters.
pay my tax now by direct means and have had it confirmed now that I can pay by cash payment, which I will do in future..
