Each dwelling is billed for Council Tax, whether it is a house, bungalow, flat, maisonette, caravan or houseboat (owned or rented)
Each property is allocated to one of nine valuation bands by the Valuation Office Agency (part of Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs) according to its market value on 1st April 2003.
The band of your property is shown on your bill. Properties in band D will pay the basic charge and properties in other bands will be charged proportionately.
The bands are shown below:
