A reminder that, due to a legal problem, the Council is not able to extend the deadline for the payment IBI (rates) to November as has been the case for the past few years. IBI payments must now be made by September 10th 2010.
A change of plan as the Council is now unable to allow the postponement of IBI (rates) payments from September 10th to November 15th as originally announced and as has been the case in previous years. As a result, the voluntary payment of IBI must be made between now and September 10th.
