Re: Council taxYou will not get a refund but a reduction on how much you pay for next years council tax. It has happened to me twice. I do not have a direct debit paying council tax, i pay it via bank transfer every month because it is something i want to be in control of. That said i have over payed many times and as a result, when my next council statement comes before the start of April, it has shown a minus sign - on the money i paid extra each month. Last year i paid £33 in over payments and all the council did was minus this from the following years payment, meaning my monthly repayments were reduced.
Re: Council tax
Re: Council taxI moved from Shropshire to Kent in 2011. Council tax over-payment money owed to me by Shropshire county council was taken off my council tax bill by Kent county council. When i moved i had to go to the local council office to disclose that i was now a resident in their county and had to sign up for the council tax. I told them i was owed outstanding money from Shropshire council, the lady said not to worry as the computer systems are all interconnected and it will make the necessary adjustment. My first council tax bill showed the council tax over-payment from Shropshire council had been added to my Kent council tax bill, it showed as a minus on my bill.
