Council Tax is collected and used by local councils to help pay for services like schools, the police and waste collections. It is based on a banded property valuation of dwellings.
The amount of Council Tax you pay depends on the number of adults living in your property and which Council Tax band the property is in.
The amount of Council Tax payable for each band is based on the requirements of the district council and the needs of the major precepting authorities (e.g. Hertfordshire County Council).
