Good morning,

I received a letter yesterday from my local authorities stating that a complaint has been made about me regarding non payment of council tax for this year and I am due to go to magistrates court on 26th of November.


 I really have been struggling with money as my hours have been cut and furlough due to COVID-19 and I have not paid any council tax this year.


What is this complaint?

Is it to obtain a court order to go to bailiffs or will I go to jail?


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thank You

It appears to be a summons, where you would attend on 26th November to discuss your problem in not making payments.


You should not wait until 26th November.  Contact the Council and look to resolve before 26th November.  The Council will have a Council Tax Benefit form to complete and you should complete this providing full details of your financial circumstances. This may include sending the Council copies of Bank statements, any wage slips.


You may qualify for a Council Tax reduction based on reduced employment earnings and you can ask the Council to consider applying the reduction from April 2020. The Council will need the Council Tax Benefit form and your financial information as mentioned to enable this.


If you fail to contact the Council and the 26th November appointment goes ahead in your absence, then yes this could lead to a liability order against you and Enforcement Officers visiting your address. The agents will look to collect the debt owed. If you then refused to pay, it may get referred back to Magistrates to consider further actions.

We could do with some help from you.

no-one goes to jail for ctax arrears.

well only the won't pays rather than can't pays....

which isnt you.


did you ever get your joint claim off the ground from your other HMRC thread last year?

you could have been getting/entitled too CTAX reduction that might not have been apparent at the time...


DON'T let this run.

as another £400 will eventually be added to the bill if bailiffs get involved, and even though to all intent and purpose you can simply ignore them as CTAX debt have no right of entry, it's not worth keeping you head in the sand like you have since april?

go speak to the council, 


please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...
