Council Tax Bands & Charges

The amount of Council Tax you pay is based on the valuation band your property is placed into. Your property is in one of the eight valuation bands set by the Assessor according to its value on the open market at 1st April 1991 and is worked out from the Band D charge.   The Scottish Assessors Association (SAA)  provides all Scotland Valuation Rolls & Council Tax Lists online.

If you disagree with the band in which your property has been placed, you can contact the Assessor to lodge an appeal.  This is known as a proposal.  The Assessor is an independent official, not an officer of the council.

Water and waste water charges are set by Scottish Water and billed alongside Council Tax. You can find more information about water charges on their website or by calling their helpline on 0800 077 8778 (free 24/7).

You may not have to pay the full amount as there are discounts and exemptions available.  If you are on a low income you may be entitled to Council Tax Reduction

 

Important Changes from 1st April 2017:

From 1st April 2017 the Scottish Government is changing the way Council Tax for properties in Bands E – H is calculated The changes mean people living in these properties will have more Council Tax to pay. The Council has no control over the way the higher bands are calculated

Single person households with income up to £16,750 and all other households with income up to £25,000 are eligible to apply for a full exemption from the increased charge through Council Tax Reduction. If you already receive Council Tax Reduction there is no need to reapply.

Charges for water and waste water are not affected by these changes.
