    Am i being stupid - Council Tax question

    Right my Tax will be 925.09.
    Now students dont pay tax.
    So if i were to do a course that cost less (than the tax) would i have to pay tax on top?

    So I pay the single person council tax thing?

    How come no one told me about this? How far back can I claim (if can back claim)

    you can get it backdated for the previous 52 weeks...IF you can prove … you can get it backdated for the previous 52 weeks...IF you can prove there is a good reason you were not claiming...eg.. you were given wrong advice...from 6 october 08 the backdated period will only be 6 months..so hury and speak to someonenot knowing you could claim though is not usually a valid reason....


    My goldfish ate the forms? Nah really, I just asked her and she still knows nothing about it, she'll ask at Uni Monday
