Text messaging for Council Tax
When contacting us about Council Tax, Housing Benefit, or Council Tax Reduction, we will ask you for your phone number. We need your number to contact you about your enquiry.
If we do not receive your Council Tax payment by the due date, the Council is allowed to use information it holds about you to help collect the tax owed. As part of this, if we hold a mobile number for you, we may send you a text message reminder. This will include a link you can use to make a payment. This service is being delivered in partnership with Yakara, who will send the text messages and take payments on our behalf.
We will not use this number or share it with anyone else without your consent, unless required to do so by law.
To opt out of receiving text message reminders contact us to advise us of this.
