Council Tax information

Council Tax costs

Your Council Tax bill shows you the cost of your Council Tax and the price band your property is in. 

The cost of Council Tax is based on the property's value (in 1991) and is determined by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA). It's based on two people occupying a property.
