Yesterday, Friday the 20th. In March, Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced that the government would provide nearly £7 billion to help vulnerable people, government agencies, individuals and businesses cope with the economic shocks caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

At a daily press conference in Downing Street, Sunak said the government’s economic measures would benefit more than four million of our most vulnerable households.

The State insurance includes additional support for tenants who may face payment and settlement problems in the coming months due to job losses already suffered since the coronavirus outbreak.

Mr Sunak described the government’s pledges as unprecedented for an unprecedented period of time because he called on the public to support each other.

But what do the government’s new measures to support budgets in connection with financial obligations such as the Soviet tax mean?

Do I have to pay Soviet tax during the eruption of Covida-19?

In an official statement earlier this week, the Minister of Local Government, Robert Jenrik, said this: The government works closely with the local government to support the most vulnerable groups in society while at the same time protecting the local economy.

As part of the funding proposed by the Government, local authorities will receive a grant of GBP 500 million, which will be distributed to them to support economically vulnerable individuals and households.

Mr. Jenrik said it: We believe that the majority of these funds will be used for tax relief, either through existing support programmes of local tax authorities or through additional benefits.

Although the municipalities take into account the burden of paying the municipal tax in its current form, most households will continue to pay the municipal tax during the Covida-19 epidemic.

The local authorities in each council will decide whether the inhabitants of the municipality will receive help to pay the municipal tax during the coronavirus pandemic, or a full tax exemption.

In Richmond, for example, the Council announced the following: We will not take enforcement action if the residents are temporarily unable to pay their Soviet tax, and the Durham County Council has also postponed the collection of debts from anyone who is in arrears with Soviet tax or corporation tax rates.

Until the municipality makes a special declaration for the payment of the local tax and the coronavirus, you must continue to pay the local tax.

However, residents who fear that their Soviet taxes will be paid during the pandemic are encouraged to apply for financial support through their local government’s Soviet tax reduction programme.

Any application for entitlement to tax benefits or for the granting of such benefits must be made to the competent local authority.
