LAST Monday I received my council tax for 2014/15.

Last year the over-70s received a discount of 7.6% for all bands.

This year the discount is 5% but only on bands A to D.

This means that my council tax has gone up by 8.73%.

No mention anywhere of the increase.

You are punishing once again the people who require a saving.

It would be interesting to find out the cost saving on the reduction.
