The money raised through Council Tax is part of the overall amount of money spent in North East Lincolnshire to provide services for local people. Other money comes from central government (Revenue Support Grant and Non-Domestic Rates).
The amount of Council Tax payable is based upon the total value of taxable property (the tax base) and the amount required to fund the service requirements of North East Lincolnshire Council, Humberside Police, Humberside Fire Authority and in certain areas by the Town/Parish Council.
The tax base is calculated using a Band D equivalent and then charged in accordance with property bands that have been determined by the Valuation Office.
Most domestic buildings are subject to Council Tax. There is one bill per dwelling, whether it is a house, bungalow, flat, maisonette, mobile home or houseboat, and whether it is owned or rented. Each dwelling has been allocated one of eight bands according to its open market value at 1st April 1991. Your Council Tax bill shows which band applies to your dwelling.
