Technical problems

Due to a technical problem we are unable to take payments via our contact centre. We are working to fix this as quickly as possible.

Services affected and other ways to pay.


Council Tax How much is my council tax?

Should I be billed for the full annual charge?

We always assume that two or more people over 18 live in your property and we base your council tax bill on this. However you should tell us if:

  • you live alone; or 
  • your property is empty; or
  • you think that only one person at the property should be counted for council tax

so that we can check if you can get money off your bill.

Some empty properties and second homes can briefly attract a discount on council tax.

Certain types of occupied properties can be exempt from council tax. It depends who lives there.

If you have a low income you may be entitled to Council Tax Support to help you pay your council tax.

You can view your Council Tax account online.
