Council Tax bands
The amount of Council Tax you have to pay depends on the valuation band into which your property has been allocated. Except for those areas, which have Parish Council precepts (where additional amounts will be charged) each property in the same valuation band will be charged the same amount of Council Tax.
The amount payable by individual taxpayers will however differ due to rebates, discounts and other reductions, which might apply.
To decide how much to charge for each band, the Council calculates an average Council Tax amount for band D properties in its area (this is £1444.33 for 2013/14) and then applies a proportion, which has been fixed by the Government to that amount to arrive at the charges for all the other bands.
Appeals against your band should be directed to the Valuation Office Agency: Council tax|
