What else meant to help the public can be eradicated by the UK coalition Government??
What more can the economic strife demand??
Council Tax Benefit might be a THING OF THE PAST very soon. Everyone will HAVE TO contribute something towards their own Council Tax, EVEN those on the lowest of incomes or on benefits. So, regardless of circumstances, ANYONE living in any housing within the UK will be paying something. The ONLY EXEMPTION to remain in place will be for the elderly (pensioners).
COUNCIL TAX (for those of you lucky enough not it know) is a:
Tax levied on households by local authorities; based on the estimated value of the property and the number of people living in it.
Is this lift on council tax benefit fair when some people clearly won’t be able to pay ANYTHING towards such a tax?
What will be the point in the Government ENFORCING such rules, if people can’t pay the tax?
What resources will be WASTED trying to ensure these people comply and do pay up?
Take a look at the link below from The Guardian newspaper for some more info.
