Council tax

What is Council Tax?

Although Hart District Council collects Council Tax, we pass nearly 90 per cent of it on to Hampshire County Council, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Hampshire, the Hampshire Fire and Rescue Authority and your local Parish Council.

To find out what band your home is in visit Council Tax Bands and Charges 2015/16 or Council Tax Bands and Charges 2016/17.

The money we collect helps pay for local services that we, and the other authorities, provide such as rubbish and recycling collections, street cleaning, education, roads, policing and fire fighting. It is charged for every home in the Hart District and the owner or occupier (who is over 18) has to pay.

The amount you pay depends on which valuation band your home is in (based on a market value of the property as at 1st April 1991).  The Valuation Office, a Government agency, set the banding independently of the Council. To find out what band your home is in visit the Valuation Office Agency website.

Council Tax charges for 2016/17

For the first time in six years, we have increased our portion of the Council Tax. This means our portion of the Council Tax average Band D has risen by £5 a year, which for a 9p per week.

The amount of Council Tax you pay depends on which valuation band your home is in, how many people live there and if you qualify for council tax support, a discount or an exemption.

You can find out more information about how Hart District Council is funded and where the money is spent in our Council Tax Guide 2016/17.

How to register for Council Tax

You need to register for Council Tax by completing the Council Tax Registration Form or contact us by emailing revenues@hart.gov.uk or telephoning the Revenues Services on 01252 774444.

The Council Tax is worked out on a daily basis. If you move home you may stop being the liable person for your old property. You should inform us about your move so that we can make adjustments to your bill. This is very important if you are moving to a new council area as you may be eligible for a refund depending on how much you have already paid. You can do this by downloading a change of address form, emailing the details to revenues@hart.gov.uk or by telephoning the Revenues Services on 01252 774444.
