How is a council tax band chosen?

Each property in England is in one of eight valuation bands. A council tax band is a range of value into which it is estimated that your property is in.

Each property in England is in one of eight valuation bands and your council tax bill shows which band your home is in. The estimated value of your home on the 1st of April 1991 is used to determine into which band your home should be placed.

Two-thirds of the homes in Aylesbury Vale are in or below band D.

 Bands Value on 01/04/91  Proportion of Band D Charge

A   Up to £40,000 6/9 (67%)
