Bands and charges

The Council Tax you pay funds services provided by us, Hertfordshire County Council and Hertfordshire Police. If you live in an area with a parish or town council, some of the Council Tax also goes to them.

Most properties are charged Council Tax, and this includes houses, bungalows, flats and mobile homes. The amount of Council Tax charged depends on what ‘band’ the property has been placed within. The Council Tax Bands are set by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA), not the Council.
