Council tax

Scams and bogus calls
Local residents have been receiving telephone calls from people claiming to be from our council tax department, stating they are due a large refund. Residents are then asked to provide their bank details. We do not, and would not, make these telephone calls.

If anyone receives such a call they should refuse to disclose information and phone us on 01752 668000. Visit our scams and bogus calls page for more information.

Your council tax helps pay for a huge range of services.

Income from the council tax provides 16 per cent of the Council's annual revenue budget of £204.6 million.

This budget enables us to provide more than 300 services for Plymouth residents. These include keeping our streets clean, keeping us all on the move, enabling our children to achieve and enjoy their schools, as well as be on hand for key moments of people's lives, such as weddings and registering births.

Like all public organisations we face challenging times as the Government reduces its funding for local public services.

Our Finance Plan below shows how we are prioritising our budget and addressing these challenges.
