a bit less than 1y ago, I was sharing a house through a join contract. In the house we were 4 students and 2 non-students. Both of the two non-students therefore had to pay the council tax. One didn't (she didn't pay a lot of things!) and now the council continues sending letters to the other non-student to ask him to pay the second part of the tax. they add fines gradually as nobody pays.
Is there a way to make this girl pay and ask to the council to stop harrassing the one who paid? He explained the situation to the council, showed the receipt proving he paid his part but they keep asking him to pay the rest. They argue that they don't have the address of the other girl.

Someone needs to dob her in.
Council tax isn't per person it is calculated on the property and so if there is one person working in the property then the council tax minus 25% discount has to be paid. There isn't a 'second part' of the council tax, the splitting of the council tax bill was a private agreement between the two working people. The person left paying the bill has to go after the amount from the other person not the council.
