According to The Guardian (p6) households face an increase in their council tax of at least £150 under government plans to finance tax cuts.

In last year's budget the government said it expected total receipts from council tax to rise by £3.5bn over three years - equivalent to £150 for a Band D property or 2p on the standard rate of income tax.

The Guardian says that government sources indicated that the budget in two weeks time will give a new three year plan. In the third year, council tax is likely to be forced up further.
