Taxpayers against poverty are organising a protest against Haringey council's plans to tax JSA
The Christmas card from Haringey Council to residents - a council tax
summons to Tottenham Magistrates court - protest on the Tuesday 6th
January Apex House.
THE TAXATION OF £72.40 A WEEK JSA IS GROTESQUELY UNFAIR.
The five Supreme Court judges commented on Haringey's 2012 council tax
"Their income was already at a basic level and the effect of
Haringey's proposed scheme would be to reduce it even below that level
and thus in all likelihood to cause real hardship, while sparing its
more prosperous residents from making any contribution to the
shortfall in government funding."
There will be a protest outside Apex House, 820 Seven Sisters Road
Tottenham N15 5PQ against the taxation of benefits by London Councils
from 9.30am to 11am on Tuesday 6th January.
The court hearings are on Wednesday 7th January but council officials
have called late and non payers to Apex House on the Tuesday 6th
January from 9.30am to 4.pm "to discuss your circumstances and see if
there is any more we can do to help you".
