RESIDENTS of South Northants are paying their dues as the district council tops the table on council tax collection rate.
South Northants Council’s collection rate for council tax up to March 31, 2011 was the third highest in the country at 99.3%, which is also highest collection rate in Northants and is up from 99.1% the previous year.
SNC is responsible for collecting council tax not only for the services it provides, but also on behalf of Northants Police Authority, Northants County Council and individual Parish Councils.
Ian McCord, SNC cabinet member for resources, said: “We owe a duty to all residents to maximise the revenue to the authority and keep the council tax rate as low as possible. In the end, those who do pay, subsidise those who do not. I congratulate all in the Revenues team on this magnificent achievement.”
