CITY taxpayers can now pay their council tax at their local shop, thanks to a trial scheme launched by Worcester City Council.
Council chiefs have hooked up with national payment network PayPoint to give residents more flexibility in how they make cash payments for their council tax, business rates or housing benefit overpayment invoices.
Until now cash payments have only been accepted at the payment kiosks at The Hive. The trial with PayPoint opens up the option to make payments at your local post office and at around 80 small retails across Worcester.
Other payments which could be added to PayPoint in the future might include fees for garden waste collections, temporary accommodation and parking fines.
