How much is my council tax?
The amount of council tax you pay depends on which band your property is in, and whereabouts in the borough you live. This is because different parish councils charge different amounts of council tax.
Council tax bands
The Valuation Office Agency allocates each property to one of eight bands according to its value on the open market at 1 April 1991. If you have a question about the band value of a property, please contact 0300 0501 501.

Appealing council tax bands
When you become the owner of a property you can appeal your band value to the Valuation Office Agency within 6 months. If you do appeal you MUST continue paying your original council tax bill. If your appeal is successful we will refund any money that you have overpaid.
