People are being reminded that there are lots of different ways to pay Council Tax – online and in person.
Seven out of 10 households in the city already pay by Direct Debit, online or by using the automated telephone payment line, avoiding the queues elsewhere.
And if people want to pay in person they can do it at their local bank (except HSBC and Yorkshire Bank) or Post Office, if they have an account. Payment kiosks are also available in the Council’s Customer Service Centre in the Upper Precinct.
Councillor Damian Gannon, Cabinet Member for Finance and Resources, said: “We’re all used to doing lots of things online these days, booking tickets, shopping and paying bills like Council Tax.
“It’s quick, easy and secure to pay online or on the phone and it means you don’t have to wait in long queues.
“People can still pop into their local bank to pay. All you need is your Council Tax bill, debit card and Council Tax customer reference number. And if you use online or telephone banking why not pay this way? It could save you time and money.”
Payment kiosks at the Council will not be available for payments after 5 December.
People will need to pay online at www.coventry.gov.uk/paycounciltax, or call the 24 hour automated telephone line on 024 7678 7778, pay at their bank or use the payment kiosks in the new Customer Service Centre.
