Hi - I've had my IVA approved which is great. However it includes my council tax which I was told wouldn't be a problem. However my council are now telling me they don't wish to participate in it. Is it not a legal requirement that they do so? What should I say to them?

If they were included in your proposal as one of the creditors then they now have to comply and are part of the process - they had the opportunity to vote however the majority votes win and this was to support your iva application.

Your IP should now support you in this communication.

As Luluj says -- it is not up to the council -- they are in, whether they like it or not. Ask your IP to explain to them as they should not be contacting you regarding this.

You may care to quote Kay v South Oxfordshire District Council to them as it is this case which essentially says council tax is in.

A good post on C Tax and debt generally here

but references to this case abound on the internet.

All the best.
