Write-off of Council Tax
The Cabinet considered a report which proposed writing-off Council Tax, amounting to £14,468.64, where it had not been possible to obtain payment because the taxpayer could not be traced or the debt was otherwise irrecoverable.
The Cabinet Member for Finance said that he used to receive regular reports from the Revenues and Benefits service on the rates of Council Tax arrears but had not received these for some time. It was confirmed that these reports were still produced and that they would be sent to him in future.
That the sums shown in Exempt Appendix A to the report, in the closed part of the agenda, amounting to £14,468.64, be written off as uncollectable.
