Dear Cheshire East Council,

Allocation of funds towards council tax

Please can you confirm what the council policy is when money is sent to the council for council tax are these payments allocated to the current outstanding bill.

For example if someone already had a charging order granted by the court on their home for a previous council tax bill , does the council automatically put the funds towards the current outstanding bill or would the funds be used instead to pay off the charging order first or does this only get collected when the property is sold.

Please can I also have a copy of your policy .

Thank you

Yours faithfully,
