for not completing the 2011 Census questionnaire
The fine for not completing and returning a 2011 Census questionnaire is up to £1,000. You may also have to pay costs.
The amount of the fine for not completing the 2011 Census questionnaire will be determined in each individual case by the magistrate.
The fine is subject to level 3 on the standard scale under the Criminal Justice Act.
Any revision to the Criminal Justice Act could change the fine for an offence under the Census Act 1920.
I imagine like the TV License you can't be jailed for not filling in the form, but you can be jailed for not paying a fine for not filling in the form.
