Council Tax Bands
This guide explains the Council Tax Banding System.
How your bill is calculated
Each Council sets its own rate of Council Tax, subject to Government limits, for each valuation band (see the band details below). District or Borough Councils collect the tax for themselves and County Councils. Parish or Town Councils can also levy a charge for their area. The Nottinghamshire Police Authority and Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service also makes a charge.
In Mansfield there are four elements that make up the Council Tax bill. These are Mansfield District Council, Nottinghamshire County Council, Nottinghamshire Police Authority and Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service.
Warsop Parish Council usually makes a charge for residents living in the Warsop area.
We have leaflets which give more details on Council Tax Benefit and Discounts and Disabled Relief and these are available from the Civic Centre.
Council Tax is made up by:
- Property element - 50%
- Personal element - 50%
Discounts are given to households where there is only one adult living in the property, or if the property is empty. For more information go to our Discounts and Disabled Relief page.
Council Tax Bands
Council Tax is based on the market or sale value of a property and is allocated into charging band by the Valuation Office Agency, an agency of the Inland Revenue. This agency is responsible for maintaining the Valuation List containing all Council Tax Bands for a district or borough council area.
Properties are allocated within one of eight bands, from A to H. These are based on sale or market value as at 1st April 1991. The Government have no plans to revalue properties for now.
|Band A||Up to £40,000|
|Band B||£40,001 to £52,000|
|Band C||£52,001 to £68,000|
|Band D||£68,001 to £88,000|
|Band E||£88,001 to £120,000|
|Band F||£120,001 to £160,000|
|Band G||£160,001 to £320,000|
|Band H||over £320,000|
If you think your banding is wrong you can appeal. For more information about the appeal process please go to our Council Tax Appeals page.
