Haven't been on here in some time, so I hope I'm posting this in the right place!

 

Background

I left the UK for the US in October 1999, at which time I had several hundred pounds in Council Tax owing.

 

Only thing that's been heard since was in 2004 when a DCA (I think it was BCW) wrote to me at my Daughter's address

- I have an uncommon surname and I think they were chancing their arm.

 

She wrote back to the effect that she had opened the letter in error,

I wasn't resident there and never had been,

and that she believed I had left the country several years previously.

 

Fast forward to now:

my wife is in poor health, and if she eventually passes, I'd consider coming home.

 

I have a vague recollection that the usual "time limit" doesn't apply and Council Tax debt can be pursued for up to 20 years.

 

Am I correct in this, and if so, when does the "clock" start?

Inclined to agree that it’s a non-issue. Just curious about the time limit thing. Consider me unworried :-D
