Council tax for care

Have your say

I have no problem paying the 2 per cent extra on the council tax to go to the local care system.

My major concern is how is this going to be collected. Will there be open transparency on the amount collected and used.

Surely it cannot be the present council, their record of collecting council tax is abysmal £30 million uncollected tax.

If large business had this amount of debt outstanding the people responsible would be shown the door.

With this amount of money outstanding for just council tax there is no way this council can collect this extra tax to provide the sufficient funding for care services.

It’s going to fall very short, and I would not trust them not to use some of the money to fill some of their black holes.

No doubt the most likely people who would require the service are the ones who have not and will not pay their dues.
