Council Tax bands and charges

All properties in Harlow come under a band from A to H, which determines how much Council Tax you pay.

The Valuation Office Agency set Council Tax bands.

The valuations are based on the property's selling price at 1 April 1991 and are not affected by changes in house prices since then. You can find out more about how properties are assessed for Council Tax bands on GOV.UK.

If you make changes to your property, such as adding an extension or conservatory, this will not affect the banding unless the property is sold, when the Valuation Office Agency may revalue it.
