Council tax is the subject of considerable media attention, public debate and ongoing review by the Government. Using statistical analyses and interviews with people who had received a Magistrates' Court summons for non-payment of council tax, this study investigates how many households are struggling to pay the tax, and why. The report looks into whether households in all council tax valuation bands are struggling to pay and how many low income households there are in each council tax valuation band. It also examines how people who are struggling to pay experience council tax benefit, and what they see as key issues and solutions. It acknowledges the fact that council tax accounts for a larger proportion of household income for those on low and middle incomes than it does for those on high incomes and discusses this in the context of its impact on making work pay and the role of council tax benefit. "Struggling to Pay Council Tax" is essential reading for all those with an interest in local taxation, and will also be of particular interest to organisations and individuals concerned with issues of personal debt and welfare to work.
