Council Tax banding and charges

The amount of council tax you have to pay is calculated by taking the full charge for your property's band, minus any council tax benefit, discount, exemption or relief.

From 1 April 2017 council tax in Angus increased.

The council agreed a 3% increase across all council tax bands for 2017-18.

In addition the Scottish Government changed how council tax is calculated and this increased council tax for properties in council tax bands E-H across Scotland from 1 April 2017.

You can find out which council tax band your property is in at the Scottish Assessors Association website by entering your postcode.

The breakdown of the council tax increase is shown in the table below.

This council tax charge does not include Scottish Water's water and sewerage charges.

Help to pay

Households with income of up to £25,000 may not have to pay the increased charge, you can apply for help through the revised council tax reduction scheme.

If you are a low income household and already receive a council tax reduction you do not need to re-apply. Your 2017/18 council tax notice will include any reduction you are entitled to.
