Council Tax Penalties

The law allows councils to impose a £70 penalty to any person who:

  • failed  to notify the authority, without reasonable excuse, on any matter which affects entitlement to discount

  • failed  to notify the authority that an exemption of their dwelling should have ceased

  • failed  to notify the authority that they have become jointly liable for council tax

  • failed  to supply the authority with information requested to establish liability

  • failed  to provide the authority with information requested after a liability order has been obtained

Where a penalty has already been applied and additional requests for the same information are made further penalties of £280 per subsequent failure may be applied, provided that:

  • the information is in the debtors possession

  • the information has been requested by the local authority for the debtor to supply it

  • the information falls within a prescribed definition of information
