Your council tax bill for 2010/2011 will be coming through the door any day now, but you might be pleasantly surprised – the average cost is set to increase by the lowest percentage since this tax was introduced in 1993.
Rises are predicted to be 2% with the average about 1.8% – about £25 extra for a typical Band D household. If the predictions are correct, once inflation is taken into account, many households would be expected to see an actual reduction in their overall council tax bills.
Good news for a change, but would the forthcoming election in May have anything to do with this?
