FOI request (FOI-65356025)
Council Tax - Credit Lists
Requested Tue 09 January 2018
Responded Mon 05 March 2018
This request is made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and further to a decision of the Information Tribunal in England and the London Borough of Bexley v Information Commissioner 2007. In accordance with the above, I hereby request a list of Council Tax accounts that meet the following criteria:
- Current overpayment/credit shown for any financial year if credit balance hasn't been carried forward.
- Accounts where a 'write on' has been used since 1st April 2000 to cancel an overpayment which has not since been reversed.
I would request that the list contains the following information:
- Payer name (Information is only requested where the payer is a company and not an individual as I appreciate this is limited by the Data Protection Acts).
- Address of property concerned.
- Amount of overpayment/write on.
- If possible, the period/financial year relating to overpayment/credit/write on.
I would anticipate much of this information is available via regular management reports from your IT system and therefore is unlikely to exceed more than 18 hours of staff time as specified in the act to comply with this request. If you wish to raise a charge for the provision of this information, please confirm the amount and method of payment required.
If the information is to be provided, the preference for format would be an excel spreadsheet submitted by email.
Please find attached spreadsheets.
There were no companies who have had a cash write back for Council Tax and that no credits for companies have been written back unable to refund hence no report.
