  9. we have a few outstanding amounts for council tax. We recently wrote to our local council with a financial summary and they have agreed to reduce payments on two accounts thus leaving two accounts with the baliffs one for £45.16 and one for£471.58 which the council they refuse to take back. my problem is we have been trying to reduce our outgoings in order to pay of some of our debts and have a car on hp which we are sending back because we cannot afford payments and day to day running costs of the car,we also have a car which we own outright and is needed to get kids to school etc, we just

Should you wish to avoid this distressing course of action and the resulting costs incurred. They have hand written that min payment 223.20 to be paid tomorrow and the debt will not be returned
