I last week received a letter from birmingham city Council stating that i have not paid enough Council tax for 2010/2011, the amount of the shortfall was for £27.54, which they said was for the rest of 2010/2011 up until the end of March 2011, which i paid next day.

Yesterday i received another letter exactly the same as the previous one, but saying that the shortfall was for £86, it also stated that if this was not paid within 7 days i would incurr court costs.


Surely if i went to court, the court would acknowledge the first letter for £27.54 as the amount that i owe. Any advice please.

if you have both bills, can you tell by comparing them what has changed?


e.g. have you had your discount adjusted? benefit adjusted? are all your payments shown?
