What happens if I don't pay my Council Tax?

Attachment of Earnings orders - guidance for employers

An Attachment of Earnings Order is an order under the powers of a Liability Order that requires employers to take money directly from the wage of one of their employees to pay off their council tax debt.

Her Majesty's Court Service has produced a hand book, Attachment Orders: A guide for employers, to help employers understand their responsibilities in order to comply with the order.
