MONEY Saving Expert has warned that ignoring the Census letters could land households with a £1,000 fine from Sunday.

The website, which was founded by Martin Lewis, published a guide earlier this month about what failing to complete the important form could mean for people.

The Census is a key part of the Government's approach to data, and there is a big push for everybody to complete it this year.

It is a survey that happens every ten years and gives the Office for National Statistics (ONS) a picture of life in England and Wales.

The Money Saving Expert warning says: "You can be fined up to £1,000 if you do not complete the census. 

"It is an offence to supply false information or not to complete the census, and you could be fined up to £1,000.

"Fines are a last resort though.

"In England and Wales, four people received the maximum £1,000 fine for non-compliance at the last census in 2011, while a further 270 people were fined an average of £218."
