Penalties

We are legally entitled to obtain information from residents, owners or managing agents to help us identify the person liable for payment of the Council Tax, provided that we ask for it in writing.

If you do not respond to a request like this, a penalty of £70 can be imposed. If you still fail to supply information, a further penalty of up to £280 may be imposed.

Change In Circumstances - A penalty of up to £70 may be imposed if you do not tell us about changes in your circumstances which affect the calculation of the Council Tax bill after receiving it. An example would be where you are claiming a single person discount and another person has moved in with you.
