How we work out your bill

Your bill is based on what we know about the value of your home and any reduction you may get if you are personally entitled to Council Tax Support or a discount

We give you a council tax bill every year - from 5 April this year to 4 April next year - that shows how much you will need to pay monthly. 

You may be able to get money off your bill, for example if you are a student, a care giver or are over 65. You will need to apply for any discounts even though we may already have your details.

You can also find out how your money is being spent.

Your band and valuation

Every home in Islington is in one of eight 'valuation bands' (A to H). This is based on the market value of your home in 1991. 

Your bill will show which band you are in. Use your band to see your yearly and monthly payments in the table below. You can use your post code to check your council tax band. You can also find out more about council tax bands on the GOV.UK website.
