Council tax appeals

You can submit an appeal if you disagree with any decision relating to:

  • liability
  • discounts
  • reductions for disabilities
  • exemptions

Normally, you can appeal if you are the person responsible to pay the council tax or the person who would be responsible if the dwelling wasn't exempt.

You can also appeal if you believe that your home should not be shown on the valuation list, for example if you think it is not in itself separate, self-contained accommodation. Equally, you can appeal if you think it should be shown in the list, if for example it used to be used for business purposes, which have now ceased.

Making an appeal does not allow you to withhold payment of the council tax owing in the meantime. You must continue to pay your bill whilst your appeal is outstanding.
