If you've recently told us about a change in your circumstances which may affect the amount of your Council Tax bill:
- This is the time of year that we calculate all the new Council Tax bills for 2014/15. So if you notify us about any changes, between the 22nd February and 31st March, we will update the details on our system. However, we can't send you a revised bill until after the end of March.
- This also means that your annual bill (dated 14th March 2014) will not reflect the change/s that you have already told us about. You don’t need to contact us about this again, as we will send you a revised bill as soon as we can after 31st March 2014.
Council Tax is a property based tax payable on domestic (residential) homes. It is a local tax set by councils to help pay for local services, such as schools, libraries, and rubbish collections. The amount you have to pay is based on the value of the property and who lives there.
