  1. I hope you don't mind but i have moved this message because i put it in the wrong Thread. I am new to these forums (see thread 23/3/08 and with your help and advice i have been able to hold off the bailiffs for now, or at least till the Councils investigations are complete, and for that i thank you all.:cool: This forum has opened my eyes with regard to Council Taxes, i have my problems but when i read what others are going through i am absolutely disgusted, and while reading these threads only one person comes to mind, albeit Archetypal English Folklore, and a certain gentleman who, armed only with a longbow and a bunch of merry men, fought, and eventually bested a tyrant who gravely abused his possition by appropriating land and possesions, levying exccesive taxation, and persecuting the poor. These days, Stealth Taxes like Council Tax, and increased petrol prices, these hit the poorest the most, people on low earnings cannot live in this so called Modern Society, The Great late George Harrison got it spot on, ( TAXMAN 1966) 1st line, "let me tell you how it will be", last line, "and your working for no-one but me".

  4. Thanx again nblaen. I don't think there is a liability order because we've had nothing from the court's and the letters we had last week are the first we knew about this, as advised, i have composed a letter to the council ombudsman which i will post on Tuesday and i will arange to see my local MP ASAP. Thanx again.
  5. Thank you all for your time and excellent advice, i will certainly make an apointment to see my local MP, and also file a complaint to the Local Council Ombudsman, in answer to your question nblaen, my wife, on collecting her family allowance at the PO, paid the Council Tax at the same time, and as i mentioned earlier, i had a clearout last November which i now bitterly regret,( i will NEVER throw away anything ever again). Last November, we moved house again and as i have in the past, i informed the C-Tax of my move and of the fact that the house we were moving to was uninhabitable, it took me (because of work comitments)several months to get the house in order, i told the C-Tax when i started the repairs on the house and they said it was no problem and to tell them when we move in, (the C-Tax for where we were living was already paid in full last November) which i did do, three days later i had a C-Tax bill for £811.00 for the address we had just moved to, i appealed and it was reduced to £450.00, again i appealed and again it was reduced to £175.00 (this paperwork i still have),i appealed again and they said i must pay this amount, but after speaking to no-less than 6 different people at the local office, no-one can tell me exactly what this is for, or how they came to this figure, i pointed out a wording on the concessions page of the C-Tax which says there could be a six month concession if the house was uninhabitable, and one could even live there for up to six weeks without being liable for C-Tax, yet the lady in the C-Tax office said that it didn't exist, so i printed a copy off and it still didn't make any difference, we piad the £175.00 to avoid any charges and put it down as a contribution towards some Council dinner(joke), This is how i know for a fact that we paid our Taxes all those years ago, because i try to do everything by the book, and i always pay my bills. Thank's again.
  6. I didn't think it would show up either, but when we applied for the Mortgage we were both working but on low income, so had difficulty getting a Mortgage, when we did get one we were told that the only thing that could stop us was if we were found to be in arrears with the council Tax, that is how i know they checked.
  7. Thank you Michael, i'm feeling better already, iv'e even put the rope back in the shed,
  8. Hi nblaen, unfortunatly i havn't, actually, i think i threw them out when i did a clearout last November when we moved house again, the Council were informed then that we were moving and they said then that our Council Tax was up to date, in fact it was paid in full, so we were in advance, they never said anything about any arrears.
  9. Thank you Kenny for your help and kind words, looks like i'm off to a good start already.
  10. Hello everyone, this is my first visit to this forum, I am here because i need some help and advice with regard to Council Tax Demands that i recieved last week, so if anyone out there can give me a step by step guide as to what i can do to resolve this issue, i would be eternally gratefull. Last week i recieved an envelope from a bailiffs with three demands for Council Tax (all three letters dated 11/03/08 saying i had not paid my Council Tax for the years 1997-98-and 99, and totaling £2428.00, i phoned the Council Tax and told them i HAD paid for those years and the lady said i would have to put it in writing, which i did, and took it down to the local one-stop office, i explained to the lady that we left the property in question in May 2000 after aquiring a mortgage for our new address, and that when i rang the council tax to tell them we had moved, and they asked for my old address, which i gave them, nothing was said about any arrears, because there wern't any, i also explained that any such arrears would have shown on my credit check for my application for the Mortgage, she agreed to this and said she didn't understand it. I then rang the bailifs and told them that i disputed the claim but they were not interested,and the action i had taken with the council would not stop them taking action against me, and that the longer i left it the more charges would be added on, so i offered to pay them a hundred pounds a month untill it was all sorted, because i did not want all these charges added on, he agreed to this and asked for money right away, i said i would start at the end of the month when i get paid, (hoping it will all be sorted out by then) so he agreed to this, and yet, to-day, i had another letter from the bailiffs saying that i hadn't paid and that they were comming to my home in the next few days to take all my belongings for auction. Why has it taken up to ten years for this to come to light?, how did i get a mortgage if i suposedly had so much Council Tax arrears?, and why did they not do this when i informed them of my changed address eight years ago?, the one stop office said that they do not know, but i still owe the money. I am awaiting a reply to my letter from the Council Tax Office, but in the meantime, can anybody please give me any advice.8)
