Council Tax Bandings
Each property has been placed into one of eight bandings according to its open market capital value at 1 April 1991. Therefore recent purchase prices are not necessarily the best evidence to use when appealing against your valuation band.
Your Council Tax bill states which band applies to your property. You can also use the My Property address search to view the Council Tax band for your property (this can be found under the Useful Information section of the results page for your search). The amount of Council Tax to be paid for each band based on property location can be viewed on our Council Tax levels page.
Challenging your Council Tax property banding
More information on how your Council Tax is calculated and guidance how to make a formal appeal can be found on the Valuation Office website.
