Council Tax helps pay for local services like policing and rubbish collection. Council Tax applies to all domestic properties, including houses, bungalows, flats, maisonettes, mobile homes and houseboats, whether owned or rented.
All properties were valued and put into a ‘valuation band’ – in England these bands are based on their value on 1 April 1991, not their current value. The valuation band determines how much Council Tax you pay. The table below shows the different bands. Underneath you can check the band for your property.
|Council Tax valuation bands||Ranges of values in England|
|A||up to £40,000|
|B||over £40,000 and up to £52,000|
|C||over £52,000 and up to £68,000|
|D||over £68,000 and up to £88,000|
|E||over £88,000 and up to £120,000|
|F||over £120,000 and up to £160,000|
|G||over £160,000 and up to £320,000|
Please note that the valuation bands differ in Scotland and Wales.
