Most properties are subject to council tax, a local tax which helps to pay for the cost of local services such as road maintenance, rubbish collection, town and parish councils and the police, fire and rescue services.
There is one bill per property, whether it’s a house, bungalow, flat, mobile home or houseboat, and whether it’s owned or rented.
Council tax bills showing your payment instalments for the whole year are sent out at the end of March.
