A FEW THOUGHTS ?

Posted: September 12, 2013 in Uncategorized

Just a few thoughts about  Council Tax

Just what the FUCK is Council Tax ?

Is it a tax imposed for living/residing/inhabiting in a specified geographical area ?

Is it a tax for enabling us to use the services provided by the council in that specified area?

LGFA 1992;

1 Council tax in respect of dwellings.

(1)As regards the financial year beginning in 1993 and subsequent financial years, each billing authority shall, in accordance with this Part, levy and collect a tax, to be called council tax, which shall be payable in respect of dwellings situated in its area.

OR

Is there no such thing as Council Tax?

Is the tax that the councils impose just one fucking huge SCAM? Is the only tax that councils may legally levy NON-DOMESTIC RATES, but the councils call it council tax?

You see, if you have been following the previous posts about council tax, you will have noticed an omission by Government, particularly the Conservative Government of 1992 who vomited this nonsense all over us after the failed attempt at POLL TAX. The omission was to not tell us that the General Rate Act 1967 had been replaced by the LGFA 1988, and that act had been replaced by the LGFA 1992.

If we look at the GRA 1967 in detail we see the LGFA 1992 with a few word changes. The General Rate Act 1967 never went away !!!

It just got a fancy new name.

Just take a look at some of the sections of the ’67 act, notice the words in bold

16 Liability to be rated in respect of occupation of property

Subject to the provisions of this Act, every occupier of property of any of the following descriptions, namely—

(a)lands;

(b)houses;

(c)coal mines;

(d)mines of any other description, other than a mine of which the royalty or dues are for the time being wholly reserved in kind;

(e)any right of sporting (that is to say, any right of fowling, of shooting, of taking or kilhng game or rabbits, or of fishing) when severed from the occupation of the land on which the right is exercisable,

shall be liable to be assessed to rates in respect of the hereditament or hereditaments comprising that property according to the rateable value or respective rateable values of that hereditament or those hereditaments determined in accordance with the provisions of this Act.

Or this

115 Interpretation

(1)In this Act, except where the context otherwise requires, the following expressions have the following meanings respectively, that is to say—

” dwelling-house ” means a hereditament which, in accordance with Schedule 13 to this Act, is used wholly for the purposes of a private dwelling or private dwellings;

” hereditament” means property which is or may become liable to a rate, being a unit of such property which is, or would fall to be, shown as a separate item in the valuation list;

” profits basis “, in relation to the valuation of a hereditament, means the ascertainment of the value of that hereditament by reference to the accounts, receipts or profits of an undertaking carried on therein;

Now, we all know the meanings of the words DWELLING and HEREDITAMENT, but look at that  …” profits basis” in relation to the valuation of a hereditament, …well I never. Who would have thought that Government would leave out that little detail from the ’92 act.

 There is no such thing as Council Tax, it’s just a tax the council may levy – NON DOMESTIC RATES – on non domestic property, but called Council Tax.

When the Tories fucked up with Poll Tax, underestimating the mood of the people, they panicked and re-introduced the GRA 1967 as it’s replacement but under a new name Council Tax. For over 20 years we have been scammed with council tax, but to make it worse our parents were also scammed with the General Rates. Our parents should not have been paying for the privilege of living in Domestic Properties.

Unfortunately we cannot make part two of the

ANGRY MAN -V- WIGAN COUNCIL

But we will be reporting the outcome early next week.

      Hi slimline66

      Thanks for the comment, I can’t take all the credit for the posts. Some very hard working lads and lassies have put in many hours of research to enable us to create the posts. Will be seeing attendees of the hearing tomorrow (weds) so should be able to post a follow up.
