How much is Council Tax?

Find out how Council Tax bands are decided, which band your property is in, and the amount of Council Tax you need to pay.

Council Tax bands

The amount you need to pay depends on which Council Tax band your property is in.

We base your property's band on the market value of the property from April 1991.

You can check your property's Council Tax band.
