Paying your council tax is about to get a whole lot more exciting as residents have the chance to win a cash prize for switching their payment method.
People have the chance to win £25,000 if they sign up to pay their council tax by Direct Debit as part of a London-wide prize draw.
Residents who already pay their council tax by direct debit are still in with a chance of winning as all 16 participating councils automatically enter their current direct debit payers into the prize draw.
Tower Hamlets Mayor, Lutfur Rahman said: “This initiative gives residents the chance to win a potentially life changing sum of money. I would like to see as many households as possible signed up to this opportunity.”
There are already 40,000 households who currently pay their council tax by direct debit out of a potential 90,000.
