Can any SPS people refer me to any documentation or provide any advice concerning the payment of council tax on a UK property whilst the soldier is serving in Germany? When posted to Germany a short while back, I kept my house here in the UK. I was informed before my departure by the local council that I would still have to pay council tax on my UK property, but that the required amount would only be 50% of the original amount paid, when I was resident at that address. The house was not rented and stood emtpy for the duration of my posting. I am now back in the UK and my local council have now said that the information they gave me was wrong and that I must now meet the outstanding 50% for the duration of my posting. Do I have any redress here or are Richmondshire District Council in North Yorkshire just a bunch of c*nts and I have to live with it?
