Council tax bands
Council tax is a tax set by us to meet our budget requirements. It helps pay for the services provided to Bolton residents.
Properties are placed into one of eight bands (A-H) depending on what their market value was on 1 April 1991.
The Valuation Office Agency is responsible for deciding the band for each property and the band will determine how much you have to pay.
House values as at 1 April 1991

|B||over £40,000 up to £52,000|
|C||over £52,000 up to £68,000|
|D||over £68,000 up to £88,000|
|E||over £88,000 up to £120,000|
|F||over £120,000 up to £160,000|
|G||over £160,000 up to £320,000|
How to challenge your band
You can ask the Valuation Office Agency to check your band if you think your home was valued incorrectly. This is a free service.
In the meantime, you must continue to pay your instalments.
