Council Tax came into effect on 1993.  It is a property tax which takes into account the number of adults living at the property so it is based upon the open market value of the property and the number of people aged 18 or over who live there.

The amount of the Council Tax is set and the tax is collected as laid down in the Local Government Finance Act 1992.

Each property, i.e. house, flat etc. is placed into a band according to its assumed open market value as at the 1 April 1991.

The Valuation Office carries out the property valuations.  Properties and their bands are listed in the Valuation Lists, which are available for inspection.

For further information please contact the Coventry Valuation Office on 03000 501 501 or visit the VOA website.
