Council tax

How much is my council tax?

Find out how much council tax you will pay for your property and about the council tax bands.

Council tax bands

  • The amount you pay for your council tax is related to the valuation band your property is in.
  • Higher banded properties pay a higher amount of council tax.
  • The value of your property (band) will be outlined in your council tax bill.
  • You can also check your current council tax band at the Scottish Assessors Association website (you need to know the postcode of the property).

The value of your property is decided by the assessor from the Renfrewshire Valuation Joint Board website.
