What happens if I don't pay my Council Tax?

A Liability Order

A Liability Order enables us to enforce payment using the following methods:

  • Order your employer to make deductions from your wages.
  • Instruct an enforcement agency to seize and sell your belongings.
  • Ask the Department of Work and Pensions to make deductions from your benefit.
  • Register a charge against your property.
  • Apply to the County Court to make you bankrupt.
  • Apply to the Magistrates' Court for you to be sent to prison.
