Making an appeal against liability for Council Tax

You may appeal if you consider that you are not liable to pay Council Tax, for example, because you are not the resident or owner, or because your property is exempt, or if we have made a mistake calculating your bill. If you wish to appeal on these grounds, you must first notify us in writing so that we can reconsider the case.

You must still pay your Council Tax even though you are making an appeal.

Pay your Council Tax online.

If your appeal is successful, you will receive a refund of any overpaid Council Tax. If you make an appeal and you are still not satisfied with our decision (or you are not notified of a decision within two months of making your appeal), you can then appeal to a Valuation Tribunal.
