Unpaid council tax

If you have problems paying your council tax, we will consider making an arrangement with you, but you need to give us your employment and income details.

Further information

We are not legally obliged to make payment arrangements, and only consider them as part of our effort to ensure all council tax payers are treated fairly and objectively.

This approach to collecting council tax enjoys cross-party political support in Leicester as we try to increase the amount we collect each year.

We will try to help you if we think you may not be claiming any discount, exemption or benefits you are entitled to.

There are several advice organisations in Leicester that can offer advice about managing your financial affairs. We also advise you take care when borrowing money, and avoid loan sharks.
