About Council Tax

Council Tax is a tax levied on domestic properties. There are just over 25,000 domestic properties in the Eden area. The amount you pay will depend on which Council Tax band your property falls into. There are both Council Tax exemptions and Council Tax discounts that can be applied to a property, or the people who own and/or live in properties. The money we collect is used to fund services provided by various bodies, the main ones being Cumbria County Council services and Cumbria Police Authority. For further information about how Council Tax is spent see your Council Tax Bill.

You can check the Council Tax Band for a property and get further information about how properties are banded on the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) website.
