Council Tax Reform

houses in autumn landscape of Betws y Coed

Help us shape the future of Council Tax in Wales.

A lot has changed since the last time Council Tax was updated in Wales in 2003 and the system is now outdated and unfair. Some people are paying too much Council Tax. Some people may not be paying enough, with households living in lower value properties being charged a relatively higher share of tax.

We’re looking at different ways of bringing our Council Tax system up to date and making it fairer. This includes the potential to introduce new Council Tax bands.

As part of our consultation, we’d like your views on:

  • different approaches for new Council Tax bands
  • regular updates to Council Tax in the future
  • discounts and exemptions
  • a more transparent system and a more effective appeals process

Respond to the consultation on our ideas for a fairer Council Tax, submit your comments by 6 February 2024.
