    Court Summons for Non-Payment of Council Tax 13th Feb 11 at 1:24 PM
    my husband and I have been summoned to court later this month for non-payment of council tax. The amount owed is relatively low (200) but since my husband lost his job in the summer we have been struggling with out finances, and unfortunately have been unable to pay the last month or so of our council tax, we have always paid before, but since hitting financial troubles have fallen behind, yet the council dont care about that, they just summon us to court. Its all a mess, my husband is currently awaiting for a tribunal hearing (he was unfairly dismissed) and life is getting so hard.

    Does anyone have experience of being taken to court for non payment of council tax, and if so, what can we expect to happen? We arent refusing to pay, its just that we dont have enough money, its all very worrying and upsetting.

    Thanks in anticipation x
