Council Tax Summons
There has been a lot of publicity about Council Tax Summonses, so I though I would get hold of some facts. According to the information I have been sent, Brent have issued 27,102 summons this year (compared to 21,746 last year). 4,728 of these have been to Council Tax Support accounts (i.e. people impacted by the changes to the Council Tax Benefit scheme). Collection rates for CTS accounts iare 88.5%, while the forecast for Council Tax collection as a whole is 95.5%.
