Advice for Trafford residents who want to check council tax banding
10:00am Wednesday 28th August 2013 in News
TRAFFORD residents are being urged not to pay any money upfront to companies claiming to offer people the chance to get their council tax banding changed.
Companies operating in this field sometimes claim to be working in conjunction with local authorities but Trafford Council is not linked to any such company.
If residents genuinely believe they are in the wrong band they are advised they can discuss this for free with HM Revenue and Customs' Valuation Office Agency, which is responsible for the council tax banding system.
If you would like to lodge a complaint about an approach from one of these companies contact the Citizen's Advice Consumer Helpline on 08454 040506.
The Valuation Office Agency can be contacted at 03000 501501.
