Q1. We do not hold this information.
Q2. The breakdown of where/how much the council tax you pay goes, is shown on your annual bill.
Q3 - 5.
The liability to pay Council Tax falls under the Local Government Finance Act 1992 and later regulations.
This is a statute created by a democratically elected Parliament of the United Kingdom which has received the assent of the Crown. Liability to pay Council Tax is set by The Council Tax (Administration and Enforcement) Regulations 1992.
This gives local authorities the right to demand Council Tax which is used to fund essential local services. Council Tax is not optional and not something you consent to. If you are liable to pay Council Tax, you must make your payments.
Any reference to a person not having consented or there being a contractual relationship between the Council has no legal basis.
