-- If you are employed, the council can order your employer to take a fixed amount from your wages to pay the Council Tax you owe. This is called an attachment of earnings order and it can mean a large amount of your wages is taken and sent to the council. Deductions are made on a sliding scale depending upon how much you earn. If you owe more than one year's Council Tax, you can have a maximum of two attachment of earnings orders. Normally payments are taken one at a time.
The council can ask bailiffs to visit your home and take goods which may be sold to pay off your debt. They must send a letter giving two weeks'; notice telling you that bailiffs will call and how much you still owe under the liability order. The bailiffs are not allowed to take certain basic household goods. They could take your car if it is parked nearby.
