Get £700 off your Council Tax

West Oxfordshire District Council is running a prize draw to give householders the chance to get their Council Tax bill cut by £700.

One lucky winner will be picked at random to receive the £700 discount on next year’s bill. This is equivalent to getting your Council Tax paid for six months if you live in a Band D property in West Oxfordshire.

The draw is being organised to encourage more people to pay their Council Tax by safe, secure Direct Debit, which helps save money and keep Council Tax bills down.

All householders who pay their Council Tax by Direct Debit will automatically be entered into the free draw. Those who do not already pay in this way can enter if they sign up to Direct Debit before January 19th 2009. All they need to do is complete a Direct Debit mandate online at www.westoxon.gov.uk or call 01993 861040.

Cllr Simon Hoare, the Council’s Cabinet Member for Resources, said: “West Oxfordshire District Council has one of the lowest Council Tax charges in the country and strives to keep bills low for residents. Paying by Direct Debit can make a real difference – if everyone in the District changed to paying by Direct Debit the Council would have nearly £70,000* extra next year to spend on services for residents”.

At present, 71.29% of households in West Oxfordshire pay by Direct Debit. As well as helping to save money and keep Council Tax bills, Direct Debit is a convenient, trusted payment method backed up by a guarantee.

The prize draw closes on January 19th and the winner will be picked on January 20th.
