Council Tax

Council Tax is a property tax with a personal element. The property element is based on the property's valuation band.

 

The personal element takes into account the number of people aged over 18 living in a property, and allows for a discount to be granted in some circumstances

 

Before we get started 

Did you know we are a separate department from Electoral Registration? Therefore, even if you have notified Council Tax, you also need to register with Electoral Registration separately.

 

 

Council Tax Reduction Scheme 2015/2016

The Council Tax Reduction Scheme replaced Council Tax Benefit on the 1st April 2013 with a National Scheme that was introduced by the Welsh Government for 2013/14 with some limited discretions available to the Council. For 2014/15 and 2015/16 the Welsh Government have made new  (CTRS) regulations which replicate the existing 2013/14 regulations. The new scheme, still allows up to 100% Council Tax Support to tax payers, depending on their financial and household circumstances.
