Your Council Tax Explained

Page updated on: 14/12/2023

Every year we spend around £699 million providing services to residents and businesses in Carmarthenshire. Your Council Tax contributes to around 16.00% of this budget – around £112 million. The remaining £587 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.

You can find the council tax valuation band for your property by visiting the gov.uk website.

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.
