Council tax bands for 2013 to 2014
The amount of council tax payable is set annually by the city council.
The actual amount payable depends on the value of your property and the current rates for Salford. The law defines what the relationship between each valuation band must be. For example, the bills for properties in band A must be two thirds of the bills for properties in band D in the same local area.
How are properties assessed for council tax?
Each dwelling has been allocated to one of eight bands by a listing officer according to its open market capital value at 1 April 1991. You can check the council tax band for your property on the government's Valuation Office website.
Is your property banded correctly?
You may be entitled to a refund on council tax if your property has been assessed incorrectly by the Valuation Office. Here's how to check whether you may have a valid claim:
- Compare your property's band with that of your neighbours
- Work out your house price at 1991 levels through Money Saving Expert
- If you think your property is in the wrong council tax band, further advice is available on the GOV.UK website
