I have a council tax question, (live in scotland)


in the past i have fallen behind with council tax payments and when the financial year is up , the balanced of the owed debt was sent to a DCA where an automatic 10% was added on. These have been payed off.


But my quesion really is; am I been unneccesary harassed over my previous poor council tax payments to keep me up to date for this current financial year..


So here goes...

I am a seasonal worker, so im on and off benifits , therefore my council tax bill is always changing. But I am always getting letters saying that I am behind in payments and that I have 7 days to get up to date or they will apply to the sheriff court for a summary warrant.


Anyway I am currently on JSA, and just got my latest council tax bill £160 for the remander of the financial year ( will change if I find employment).. got to pay it in two installments on the 1st of DEC and the 1st of Jan. At this time of year I cant really afford to pay this amount, but would happily pay it in Feb and Mar.


So the question is can the council apply to the sherriff court for a summary warrant during this current financial year for the debt if I miss my payments on Dec and Jan?.....surely I am allowed up to the last day of the financial year to pay this debt? I do accept that once the financial year is over that they can refer me to a DCA to recover debt but I feel it is harrasment to send me threatening letter during the current financial year...
