You pay council tax for any property you live in, as well as unoccupied properties. Every property is allocated a band A-H which is based on its value at April 1991. The thresholds of these bands and the current council tax for the 2019/20 financial year are:
|Property band||Capital values as at 1 April 1991 (£)||Council tax (£) 2019/20|
0 - 40,000
|A||0 - 40,000||1,185.84|
|B||40,001 - 52,000||1,383.48|
|C||52,001 - 68,000||1,581.12|
|D||68,001 - 88,000||1,778.76|
|E||88,001 - 120,000||2,174.04|

|G||160,000 - 320,000||2,964.60|
Council tax bands are based on how much a property was worth on 1 April 1991. The Valuation Office Agency is responsible for valuing properties for the purposes of council tax banding.
