Council TAX practice worst than the bankers.
Hello my good readers and welcome to another blog post on a serious note regarding council TAX in the UK. The scandalous scheming cons and how a agreement passed in 1992 by the previous conservative government has come back to attack the poor.
We all know how annoying and painstaking it can be trying to communicate and resolve issues with the council TAX departments across the UK or should we call them local criminals.
Interestingly here is the 1992 legislation for council TAX enforcement that we will refer to bellow:
Council Tax (Administration and Enforcement) Regulations 1992, particularly Regulations 33 to 35.
Now you may think the above is all in order and perfectly fine, we all have to pay the TAX blabla blaaa. Yes i agree and yes we do as council TAX pays for the police force, Fire service, refuse and street cleaning as well as the salt gritters, pedestrianized repair/development drainage etc. Weather you like it or not we all need and enjoy these services that it provides so we pay for it.
The problem begins when local councils begin to pervert the above regulation sections 33 and 35. Just when you thought it was all fine to have such a regulation it gets perverted out of all control and in today’s day 20 years since it was made this perverted legislation busts out into the open for some to see, hopefully now everyone can see it.
It is fair to say that the legislation (if you have not read it already) states that on two defaults meaning you fail to pay your council TAX not once but twice you will be summoned to court to be challenged as to why you failed to pay your council TAX not once but twice, fair comment so far would you not say.
Summons costs at present are £62.50 and for a low income person/families this is allot of money, if there circumstances are difficult there council TAX alone is hard to pay. Hitting them with another £62.50 summons cost is really not the way to go for starters. It makes me laugh when the government criticize bankers for there bonuses and or bank charges and then they them selves are guilty beyond all question of a doubt of the same criminal activity.
Now the argument against this is that people who default and do not(maybe they refuse to pay) there council TAX must be summoned and it is the cost of the court for which the £62.50 is for. Because the council TAX enforcement is actually run by public money (Council TAX oh yea your money is not just for fire service and so on but also to pay for the collection and accountant staff on stupidly high wages that we could do without or at least cut the cost to). The summons cost is to be paid by the person(s) not paying there council TAX. I am sure many readers are saying tuff tits at the screen right now regarding this but remember if someone is having difficulty paying there council TAX due to low income or whatever, is it fair to hit them with a higher bill.
If you think the above is fair or unfair you have not heard the worst of it yet so read on. Continue reading
