SODC: Help available for those struggling to meet council tax payments as bailiff fees go up

From 6 April 2014 the nationally set charges that are issued by bailiffs when they are required to visit non-payers of council tax increased substantially.  This means that anyone who does not pay their council tax and ignores the subsequent reminder letters will be liable to pay a hefty fee. Council taxpayers who are finding it hard to meet their regular bill payments are being urged to seek assistance as soon as possible.
