If you live in a Band A property you pay two thirds of the basic rate, while if you live in a Band H property you pay twice the basic rate. Your Council Tax bill shows which band applies to your home and the table above sets out the amounts due for 2008/2009. Read more about valuation and property bands or click here to find the valuation band for your property.
When we set Council Tax, we assume that two or more adults live in each property. If you live alone, you are entitled to a single person discount and your Council Tax will be reduced by 25% (a quarter). Other reductions such as those for people on low incomes are also available.
If you let your property as holiday accommodation and it is available for letting for 140 days or more in a year, it should be rated for Business Rates.
