We are responsible for collecting Council Tax on behalf of; Leicestershire County Council, Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Leicestershire, the Combined Fire Authority and parish councils throughout the borough.
We make payments to those authorities whether we have received your payment or not, which is why we will take prompt action against you if you do not pay your Council Tax on time.
What happens if I forget to pay?
If your payment is late we will issue a reminder notice for the overdue amount. If this is not paid by the required date, the full remaining balance becomes due and a summons may be issued against you.
Whilst paying the 10 monthly instalments in a year, a maximum of two reminder notices will be issued. Should your payment be late a third time, then the full balance on the account becomes due and a final notice is issued.
If the full balance is not paid within seven days a summons may be issued against you and extra costs will be added to your account.
What happens if a summons is issued?
Following the issue of a summons we will attend the Magistrates Court (on the date specified on the summons) and ask for a liability orders to be granted against you.
If a liability order is granted we are legally permitted to use a range of 'enforcement' actions to collect outstanding Council Tax (for example, attachment to earnings orders).
What should I do if I can't pay my Council Tax?
If you are struggling to make payments please contact the Council Tax office as soon as possible to discuss alternative arrangements for payment.
Although it may not be possible to avoid the issue of a summons and grant of a liability order, an acceptable payment arrangement will allow us to suspend the use of 'enforcement' actions, and can help avoid the accumulation of debt.
