What is council tax?

Council tax is payable to your local council. The money collected from council tax payments helps to pay for local services such as rubbish and recycling collection and local area maintenance.

Visit your local council website for information about:

  • registering for council tax
  • finding out your council tax band
  • how to pay
  • how to apply for a discount or exemption

If your property is in England or Wales visit GOV.UK for information on council tax.
