Non Dependent Status
This one comes from a member who has highlighted a sneaky trick which the ‘powers-that-be’ are employing, in order to claim council tax in a situation where it should perhaps not be paid; all because of one of the family living with you is alternatively-abled/disabled.
Are you in receipt of Housing Benefit? Do you act as full time carer for an alternatively-abled/disabled family member? Have you paid reduced Council Tax bills in the past as a result of your circumstances?
If the answer to these questions is “yes” then you may have have recently received demands for increased council tax payments.

Possible Arguments Against You
The justification being cited by many Council Tax Officers for increased Council Tax bills is the “non-dependant” or “independent” status of your disabled loved-one. In many cases of severe disability use of the phrase “non-dependant” should ring alarm bells, because the severely disabled are often totally dependant!
The Almost Legal Info
The ‘council’ are simply ignoring the facts, which they ought reasonably be aware of, and in the process of doing so, are causing you unnecessary and avoidable inconvenience. In some cases we believe that the actions of council tax staff may be tantamount to harassment.
We hope that this document will assist you in overcoming the demands, and arguments, of ignorant council employees.
Remember: ignorance is an extension of the word “ignore”.
