1. Working out your Council Tax

You’ll need to know 3 things:

Find out if you’re eligible and apply for a Council Tax discount.

A full Council Tax bill is based on 2 or more adults living in a household.

You may be able to challenge your Council Tax band if you think your home is in the wrong valuation band.

In England and Scotland,valuation bands are based on property values on 1 April 1991, not what a property is worth today. In Wales, valuation bands are based on property values on 1 April 2003.

You may be able to get financial help if you’re having trouble paying your bill.

Council Tax Benefit has now been replaced by Council Tax Reduction.
