Suffolk Coastal is responsible for collecting Council Tax for the district, although the total amount collected is divided between Suffolk Coastal, Suffolk County Council, Suffolk Police & Crime Commissioner and your town or parish council.
The money is used to provide local services such as education, social services, libraries, police, refuse and recycling collection, leisure centres - to name just a few.
The amount of Council Tax you have to pay (before any reductions) depends on the level of Council Tax set and the valuation band of your property.
Your property has been assessed for Council Tax in one of eight valuation bands (A-H) according to its estimated sale value at 1 April 1991:
|Band A - Up to £40,000||Band E - £88,001 to £120,000|
|Band B - £40,001 to £52,000||Band F - £120,001 to £160,000|
|Band C - £52,001 to £68,000||Band G - £160,001 to £320,000|
|Band D - £68,001 to £88,000||Band H - More than £320,000|
The allocation of the correct Council Tax bands to all homes in England and Wales is the responsibility of the Valuation Office Agency (new window). You can appeal if you disagree with your Council Tax banding.
