Council Tax bands

Page updated on: 26/08/2019

Council Tax is set by the council to help pay for the services provided in your area. Council Tax is the current form of local taxation for domestic properties which local authorities use to raise money to pay for around 20% of the cost of local services such as Education, Social Services, Refuse Collection and so on.

Your Council Tax bill is made up of three parts - County Council charge, Community Council charge, Dyfed Powys Police Authority charge.

Your bill will show how much of the charge is due to the three parties. The Council sets the charge at Band D level dwellings, but the amount for properties in other bands will be higher or lower according to the following ratios.

Valuation Band A B C D E F G H I
Tax Proportion 6/9 7/9 8/9 9/9 11/9 13/9 15/9 18/9 21/9

You can find the council tax valuation band for your property by visiting the gov.uk website. Please note, however, that the valuation band can be reassessed by the Valuation Office in certain circumstances e.g. if it is decided that the last assessment was incorrect or if there has been a material increase in the value of a property and the property is then sold or leased for 7 years, or more.

The current annual charge for a property will depend on the valuation band which has been assessed and the community in which the property is situated. The full Council Tax bill assumes that there are two adults living at your property. However you may be eligible for a discount or exemption.
