Problems paying your Council Tax

2. What happens if you do not pay Council Tax

If you do not pay your Council Tax on time we’ll send you a reminder notice. If you do not pay within 7 days and do not contact us, you could lose the right to pay by instalments.

If you make the payment by the date requested, but miss another payment in the same year you’ll be sent another reminder notice.

You’ll get a maximum of 2 reminder notices every year.

If you miss a third payment and do not contact us you will get a final notice and the outstanding balance of the year’s Council Tax will be due for payment in full.
