Council Tax and Organising Your Household Budget

There have been questions asked about Council Tax and many people, myself included, have yet to receive official notification of their commitments for 2019/2020.  There are rumours that the delay is due to next week’s Wallington North by-election but the information is all on line!

Of course you can register for and pay your Council Tax on www.sutton.gov.uk – in fact the Council Tax payment system is the most visited part of the website!  But I looked up the detail today and these are the published figures for this year’s Council Tax:
