Council tax 2021/22

A guide to your council tax 2021/22

Council tax is a property-based tax payable on most domestic properties such as a house or flat but can include a houseboat, caravan or a granny annexe.

The council tax charge is set by local councillors and depends on how much money is needed to run local services and how much is given to the council by central government.

One bill is sent to each household detailing the council tax charge for the forthcoming year. The band of the property determines the level of tax each household pays.
