Local government tax collection enforcement (Council Billing Authorities)

Mr Frankham made this Freedom of Information request to Her Majesty's Treasury

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Her Majesty's Treasury,

This FOIA request has been forwarded to HM Treasury by the Ministry of Justice who peculiarly do not know what level of court is required because they say there is no legal or business requirement for the MOJ to do so.

Please confirm under FOIA who is authorised to collect Governent taxes excluding HMRC who do not collect or enforce local government tax.

What information you hold that confirms that Local Government council billing authorities are authorised by Central Government for council tax and business rates billing, collection and for the enforcement within the court system.

What level of court is authorised for the enforcement of government taxes by national council billing authorities, where a liability order has been made.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Frankham
