Council Tax Information

Council Tax is not charged on exempt properties.
Planned spending and your council tax
The council tax collected by Ribble Valley Borough Council is shared between a number of local government organisations in the area. Find out more about how council tax is shared amongst organisations and how council tax is spent.
How much do I have to pay?
The full Council Tax assumes that there are two or more adults living in a property. If there is only one adult, or if the property is a second home, discounts are allowed on the Council Tax bill. There are also a number of people who are disregarded when we look at the number of adults who live in a property.If you receive certain benefits, or your income is low, you may be able to get your Council Tax payments reduced by claiming Council Tax Benefit/Local Council Tax Support.
