Difficulty paying Council Tax
If you have difficulty paying your Council Tax
- Check to see if you are entitled to any Discounts, Exemptions and Benefits allowances (Council Tax reduction)
- If you currently pay over ten months, you can request to extend your council tax payment plan so that instalments end in March
- Do not ignore your debt. The sooner you get in touch, the more help we can give you
Please note recovery action may be taken against you if your monthly instalments are not paid or you fail to contact us and agree a suitable repayment plan.
