Your Council Tax explained

Page updated on: 09/05/2022

Every year we spend around £656 million providing services to residents and businesses in Carmarthenshire. Your Council Tax contributes to around 15.90% of this budget – around £104 million. The remaining £552 million is funded by Government grants and council income.

Each property in Carmarthenshire pays Council Tax, the amount depends on what your property is worth.

Your Council Tax is made up of three parts, we collect on behalf of Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner and your local town or community council, who set their own budgets and levels of Council Tax.
