What does council tax pay for?

Council Tax helps fund a range of essential services, such as police and fire services, leisure and recreation facilities (such as parks), libraries and education, care for elderly residents and individuals with disabilities, waste management (including collection, disposal and recycling), road maintenance (including street cleaning and lighting), and administration tasks such as updating birth, death, and marriage records. The biggest share of the tax revenue is allocated towards social care for children and vulnerable adults.

Who has to pay council tax?

Most people aged 18 and over pay Council Tax in the UK. You are exempt from Council Tax if everyone in your household is a full-time student.

How is council tax determined?

The Council Tax you’ll be charged is determined by two factors: the value of your property and the local authority you reside in. Each property in the United Kingdom is assigned a Council Tax band ranging from A to H, based on its 1991 market value.

The local council determines the Council Tax amount for each band as part of its budget, resulting in varying tax payments for properties within the same band due to location differences.
