Council Tax

You remember the Council Tax riots we had under Thatcher? Poles do it differently.

Nowy Sącz has about 85,000 inhabitants. The council is revising the way it charges for rubbish collection so it sent every home a form which the residents were asked to complete and return – the key question was how many people live at this address.

The completed forms were analysed, heads were scratched – somehow the population of Nowy Sącz had fallen to 35,000!
