Council tax bands

Find your council tax band

Your council tax band depends upon the valuation your property has been given by the Valuation Office Agency and is based on the market value of the property as of 1 April 1991. Your council tax bill will tell you which band your home has been given and how much you have to pay or you can use Self Service to search for your council tax band online.
