Calderdale Council’s Director of Communities and Business Change, Robin Tuddenham, said:
“The Council is committed to helping residents in Calderdale pay their Council Tax. We want people to know that help is at hand and there is no need to struggle alone.
“We are holding sessions right across the borough, to ensure as many people as possible have access to support and advice if needed.”
One way people can manage their Council Tax is by paying by Direct Debit. Six out of every ten people in the borough already use Direct Debit to pay and it’s easy to see why. Direct Debit is free and guaranteed and is a much quicker and simpler way to pay for your Council Tax.
You can now choose from any one of five payment dates and you can even pay your Council tax across all 12 months instead of 10. You can even set it up online at www.calderdale.gov.uk/counciltax
