When you do and don't pay Council Tax

When you do not pay Council Tax

If you own a property that qualifies for an exemption (does not require you to pay a Council Tax bill) you will not receive a Council Tax bill for this period. However we will send you information to let you know the valuation band the property has been placed in and what the Council Tax would be if it were not exempt.

Contact us if you believe you qualify for an exemption to be applied to your property.

If you receive an exemption then you must tell us of any change of circumstances which affects your entitlement within 21 days. Failure to do so may lead to a penalty charge.
