What council tax band am I?

 

It is important to have a clear understanding of how your local authority calculates and bills for council tax on an annual basis. The majority of households in the United Kingdom are eligible to pay council tax and as such, being aware of your council tax band and property value is necessary to avoid further confusion.

You should be aware of your council tax band already if you are under the auspices of a local authority. Every year, your local council will send out a detailed statement which will break down just how much council tax you are liable for and how it is broken down. 

Here at www.counciltax.info we can help you calculate how much council tax you should be paying if you are in any doubt or if you just want to be sure. Depending on your local authority, your council tax will rise year on year unless there has been a freeze implemented in line with central government. 

If you have been asked to pay more council tax than you think you should, or if you are in the market to buy a property and want to know how much it will cost annually in council tax, try out our council tax calculator

You will find that the calculator is up-to-date and the value of your property is catered for. You will also be able to establish how much of a refund you could be entitled to. Sometimes even local authorities get things wrong and your property may be in the wrong property band. Establishing your property band and its value could be helpful if you believe you are paying too much.

It is also important to make sure you are paying the right amount of council tax when you come to selling your property. If you are planning on selling your home you should know how much the council tax is on an annual basis, especially if there have been improvements made to the property since you purchased it. 

Using our calculator, you can determine if you are paying the right amount of council tax or if you are paying too much. If you are paying too much, we have a council tax refund calculator that will give you an idea as to how much you are paying over and above what you should be.
