Sheffield Council Tax Arrears

19,000 Nottingham homes to be taken to court

50% increase in council tax arrears in the year, of the 19,757 summoned only 8277 paying council tax for the first time. Quote: 'Deputy council leader Graham Chapman said the authority was having to “squander” money to chase people who couldn’t pay. He said the level of people in arrears was predictable.“It’s always what we expected. By luck or judgment, we had worked out that we would have an £800,000 gap (of arrears after benefit changes) and we are doing our utmost to recover it. The recovery costs are £300,000 and there’s a lot of people who are really struggling to pay.“It costs the council tax payer a lot more money to make poor people poorer.”
