Cllr Sean Woodcock Slams Cherwell District Council’s Tax Bill Shambles

Inaccurate Council Tax bills have been sent to 36,000 households in Cherwell District, with errors in people’s names and the amounts of tax due.

The company responsible for this contracted-out service is Capita, and they are being paid over £700,000 of our money as tax payers.   What a shambles! “It’s absolutely appalling that this mistake has happened,” said Cllr Sean Woodcock, Leader of the Labour Group.  Sean also voiced concern about the confusion this has caused to residents – and the extra work for Council staff dealing with enquiries from bewildered and anxious people. Capita has apologised, but that does not excuse their incompetence – we expect better value for our money!

Here we have yet another example of privatisation failing to improve the service to the public.
