Council Tax Valuation Table (pdf)
Under the Council Tax the amount each household pays depends upon the Valuation Band into which the property has been placed and how many people reside there.
Valuing dwellings to put them into the appropriate Council Tax bands is one of the main responsibilities of the Valuation Office.
The Council Tax is the way in which local councils raise some of the money needed to pay for their services although much is still determined and funded centrally by the Government.
