Your Council Tax bill

Council Tax is collected and used by councils to help pay for local services like schools, the police and waste collections. Find out more about what how your council tax is spent.

How your bill is calculated

Council Tax is based on a banded property valuation of dwellings. The amount you pay depends on:

  • the number of adults living in your property
  • 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).
