Council Tax: Datasets
Some information released through a Freedom of Information or Environmental Regulations request may be of general public interest. In these cases, we'll make this information available in datasets here.
Council Tax Collection
Council tax is the main source of locally-raised income for local authorities. Council tax collection data analyses the amount of council tax that Welsh local authorities collected in each financial year.
Council Tax Levels
Council tax is calculated based on the council tax band assigned to each dwelling. Properties in each Welsh local authority are assigned to one of nine valuation bands: A to I.
Council Tax Dwellings
Council tax dwellings data provides details of the number of dwellings liable for council tax in Welsh local authorities for the financial year. The data also shows details of council tax discounts and exemptions.
Accounts With Credits Written-On
This list includes Council Tax accounts that have a credit balance (+£20) that have been written-on. The data includes the credit amount written-on and the financial year it relates to. If you think you are entitled to an amount in this list you will need to complete a refund application form.
