Council Tax... Is There An OBLIGATION To Pay It?

First of all... The Word Obligation

At some point in time, approaching 800 years ago, we created a word which we understand to represent our binding pledge, a commitment that we freely make to fulfil a promise or meet the conditions of a contract.

A quick glance at the dictionary will inform you that an obligation is a moral or legal requirement or duty. The act of obligating or the state of being obligated. A legally enforceable agreement to perform some act, especially to pay money, for the benefit of another party and so on.

It is a legal bond by which one or more parties (the obligated) are bound to act or indeed to refrain from acting. In short it defines what it is that we must or must not do and that in essence is a contract.

Obligation to pay

How do we make a contract?

Simply put a contract is made by the mutual consent of two or more persons. There is an offer and an accepter. This act of contract is made by people consenting to be contracted by their own free will. You cannot be forced into a contract against your will.

By this contract our duties, rights and obligations are created.

No one can create these duties, rights and obligations without our agreement, that would be an act of force and is unlawful.

What this boils down to is that no one person, throughout the entire kingdom has entered in any contract with their local district council. At no point has anyone ever entered in any contract and nor has anyone ever agreed to pay them.

There does not exist any duties, rights or obligations.  It is an illusion.

To put it another way, no person can create an obligation for another person. It is preposterous to suggest otherwise, just imagine a world in which we can bind one another to a contract without their permission.

That is however precisely what your local council is doing when they send you your bill. That you choose to pay their claim has always been left entirely up to you.

Or to put it another way, if I send you a bill will you just pay up.

Of course, I could turn up at your house and threaten you if you don’t, which is not dissimilar to the action of our local councils.

It is time for this farce to stop.

It is past time that we stop sending our hard-earned money to organisations that have long stopped acting in our interest.

How Many Answers To These Questions Are "NO"!

  • Did you sign a contract to pay?

  • Did you make a promise to pay?

  • Did you verbally agree to pay?

  • Did you give your voluntary consent to pay?

  • Did you request any services?

  • Are you given a choice not to pay?

  • Is being forced to pay fair?

  • Is it right that you are coerced and forced into paying?

  • Have you been informed of any terms and conditions?

  • Without t & c's can you hold the council accountable?


Legislation, Acts of Parliament use FORCE to make claims upon us.
However they are neither proof of claim or authority over us.


The Council Must Prove An Obligation To Pay...? But Can Never Produce It

All acts require CONSENT to be given the force of law, they are merely rules and regulations. They are NOT law.
There is NO law requiring anybody to pay tax of any kind.

The dispute is with the following part of Legislation:

The Council is under a legal obligation to prove that we are under an obligation to comply with the councils command, as detailed in

“section 34(6) of The Council Tax (Administration and Enforcement) Regulations 19921"

which requires the council to satisfy the courts the following two presumptions:

1) The sum has become payable by the defendant (you) and
2) That any obligation has not been paid.

Therefore the burdon of proof is on the council to prove the OBLIGATION exists.

There has never been an obligation to pay, now is the time to settle this claim once and for all...

So, we have the right to withhold our payment until the council...

“prove our to pay?”
