Residents are being urged to pay their council tax before the end of March when accounts in arrears are reviewed and next year’s bills arrive.
It is important that any outstanding council tax is paid in full before March as unpaid bills are always chased and often result in a court summons at a cost of £60, on top of your outstanding balance.
Council tax payments mean we can continue providing vital services such as high quality care for your elderly relatives, effective social services for the weak and vulnerable and protecting children, as well as keeping the streets clean and maintaining parks – so it is important everyone does their bit.
A new online service for people to access their council tax details was launched in 2017 to give residents instant access 24 hours a day. You can check your My Account to make sure any balance is cleared before the new bills are issued.
To view your council tax account online, go to the My Account section at www.nelincs.gov.uk and follow the instructions. You will need your council tax account number and email address to see your account online. Your account number can be found on your latest council tax bill.
If you are having difficulty paying, there are a number of ways we can help, so please get in touch on 0300 3030164.
Councillor David Watson, portfolio holder for finance, said: “We appreciate the vast majority of residents are up to date with their council tax payments and we’d like to thank you for your contribution to the local community.
“There are sadly a small number of residents who actively choose not to pay their council tax and instead prioritise personal luxuries over creating a better area for people to live in.
“Please pay your council tax so you can support your local community and make a better North East Lincolnshire.”
