Council Tax bands & charges

The cost of your Council Tax depends on the band of your property and the number and circumstances of the adults that live there.

To see how much Council Tax you need to pay, our Council Tax Calculator will show you the full charge for your area and housing band. You can also find the range of all council tax charges by clicking the calculator and searching 'All Areas' and 'All' bands. Please note if you cannot find your area in the listings then your council tax charges will be the same as for 'Doncaster'. 

Your Council Tax is based on the value of your property as it would have been on the open market as at 1st April, 1991. Once it has been valued, it has been placed into one of eight broad valuation bands.  

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 £320,001 and above

If you are buying a house, the current band may increase once the sale has completed. This is because if the Valuation Office decide that improvements to a property are significant enough to move it into a higher band, then we must charge the higher rate.

Additional charges

In some parts of the borough, there is an additional charge from a town or parish council, which will go towards additional services provided in those areas. For details of parish precepts and further information, please see our leaflet:

The Valuation Office will decide if a property should attract a Council Tax charge by placing it into one of eight Bands from A to H. This will apply to most domestic properties whether they are owned, rented or empty.

There are some exemptions and discounts that will lower your bill, and Council Tax support is available in some circumstances.
