HARINGEY COUNCIL'S TAX COLLECTION FIGURES AMONGST 20 WORST IN COUNTRY

Figures published by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister this week on the collection rate of Council Tax in the UK place Haringey in the bottom 20 councils in the country for tax collection.

Cllr Jonathan Bloch (Muswell Hill) comments:

“The figures show just how poor the collection rate is in the borough, with over 7 per cent of residents in Haringey not paying their Council Tax. The London average for collections is 94 per cent.

“With council taxes set for further shocking rises, Haringey Council needs to focus efforts on a dramatic improvement in collections this year, otherwise our already over-stretched services will suffer.”
