Council Tax appeals
Under certain circumstances you may be able to appeal to your council regarding your council tax.
You may appeal to the council if you consider that:
- you are not liable to pay council tax - for example, because you are not the resident or owner
- your property should be exempt; or
- the amount shown on your bill has been calculated incorrectly - for example, your entitlement to a discount is not shown
Any appeal should initially be made in writing. We will consider your case and if you have not been contacted within two months or if no agreement has been reached by this time, you have a further right of appeal to a valuation tribunal.
Making an appeal does not allow you to withhold payment or part payment of the council tax. If your appeal is successful you will be entitled to a refund of any overpayment.
Appeals about the band that your property has been allocated must be made to the listing officer of the Valuation Office Agency.
