Your Council Tax Bill
Unfortunately all households have a council tax liability and failure to pay it will end up with you appearing in your local Magistrates Court!
Like everything else in life you need to fully understand what your obligations are with council tax and importantly what your rights are in respect of what you have to pay and what you can claim etc...
How is Council Tax calculated?
To find out how much your Council tax is you need to consider:
‘Which valuation band your property falls within (see below);
How much your local council charges for the band that your property is within; and
Whether you are entitled to any discounts or exemptions on your full bill.
