Council tax


Council tax is a fee you pay to your local council. The cost is set by your council, and it goes towards funding local services like: 

  • The police and fire service 
  • Rubbish and waste collection 
  • Transport services 

The amount of council tax you will have to pay depends on the value of your home and where it is you live. You can find out how much you need to pay from your local council.  

There are some discounts on council tax for disabled people.
