How much should I be paying?

Each home or dwelling was allocated a band from A-H by HMRC's Valuation Office Agency, based on its open market capital value on 1 April 1991. They provide a facility for you to check the council tax band for your property. 

Your council tax bill shows you which band your home is in, from A-H. The table shows the valuation band ranges and the amounts payable per year. If you are entitled to a deduction, minus it from the rate indicated below.

Think yours is incorrect?

Any queries regarding the banding of your home should be directed to the Valuation Office Agency

If you believe the banding of your property should be changed because there has been a substantial increase or reduction, you can challenge your banding. A reduction in value may result from the demolition of any part of the home, any change in the physical state of the local area or an adaptation to make the home or dwelling suitable for use by someone with a physical disability. In these cases revaluation should take place as soon as possible.

Please note that making an appeal does not allow you to withhold payment of tax owing in the meantime. If your appeal is successful you will be entitled to a refund of any overpaid tax.

Further details of the appeals procedures (including the role of the valuation tribunals) are available via The Valuation Office Agency.
