Hi,

 

I need some help here is there is someone who can help me, at the moment we have an outstanding balance with Rugby Borough Council for our Council tax of £766, I want to arrange some kind of payment and after I have taken into account my basic salary and all the outgoings etc is worked out that I can afford to pay £100 per month.

 

I called the council and offered this to them however they started asking me questions regarding my income & benefits etc. Apparently they take into account my child tax credits and my wifes child benefit when it comes to working out a repayment plan.

 

Is this right? I honestly though that when working on how much you can afford to pay it was not allowed to take into account any benefits etc?

 

I am the only earner in my family, I have 6 kiddies (always wanted a big family).

 

is something amiss here or am I just being silly.

 

Thanks

They are able to consider any income they wish when they consider a payment arrangement with yourself. A payment arrnagement isn't specified in the council tax(administration and enforcment) regs 1992 so the council can set their own terms.

 

Where a notice is served under regulation 36 requesting details the authority are also legally allowed to ask for the following.

 

Duties of debtors subject to liability order

36.—(1) Where a liability order has been made, the debtor against whom it was made shall, during such time as the amount in respect of which the order was made remains wholly or partly unpaid, be under a duty to supply relevant information to the billing authority on whose application it was made.

 

(2) For the purposes of paragraph (1), relevant information is such information as fulfils the following conditions—

(a) it is in the debtor's possession or control;

(b) the billing authority requests him by notice given in writing to supply it; and

© it falls within paragraph (3).

 

(3) Information falls within this paragraph if it is specifed in the notice mentioned in paragraph (2)(b) and it falls within one or more of the following descriptions—

(a) information as to the name and address of an employer of the debtor;

(b) information as to earnings or expected earnings of the debtor;

© information as to deductions and expected deductions from such earnings in respect of the matters referred to in paragraphs (a) to © of the definition of "net earnings" in regulation 32 or attachment of earnings orders made under this Part, the Attachment of Earnings Act 1971[15] or the Child Support Act 1991[16];

(d) information as to the debtor's work or identity number in an employment, or such other information as will enable an employer of the debtor to identify him;

(e) information as to sources of income of the debtor other than an employer of his;

(f) information as to whether another person is jointly and severally liable with the debtor for the whole or any part of the amount in respect of which the order was made.

the council have said that they are going to take it to court and that they will apply a further £50 on in chargers because its going to go to court.

 

they suggestion I wait till it gone to court before I arranged my payment plan however i said I wanted to do it before.

 

its sounds strange that they would still want to take it to court and have further charges applied.

they reason they want to take it to court is to get a liability order

this gives them the legal right to employ bailiffs (usually there first choice) or get an attachment of earnings
