Thought that some of you may be interested in this piece I found in the Torygraph today. "TA Medic wins council tax case A medic in the TA has won a 3 year legal battle after refusing to pay council tax whilst serving in Iraq. Ian Boynton, 39, refused to pay while serving during the 2003 Gulf war after discovering that his council tax benefit would be stopped. Magistrates at Beverley, East Yorks, quashed the demand for Â£230 in arrears yesterday because local authorities now had discretionary powers to allow TA soldiers serving abroad a discount on their council tax" Anyone due any money back? I know its only discretionary but if enough noise is made I am sure that some decent person in the council will see sense..........ummm Does anyone know if the regs get the same consideration? I would have hoped so.
