This page gives you information about Council Tax bands. It explains how they are calculated, and tells you how much you’ll need to pay.

How much do I have to pay?

Your Council Tax is calculated according to your property’s value on 1 April 1991, not what a property is worth today. This is decided by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA), not Portsmouth City Council. If you think your property value is wrong, find out how to challenge your Council Tax band.
