Council tax

The amount you pay in council tax contributes to services provided by us, your local district or borough council, North Yorkshire Police Authority, North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service and your parish council.

Visit your local district or borough council for this service

In North Yorkshire this service is delivered by your local district or borough council. They handle account queries, annual notifications, appeals, backdated claims, band reductions, discounts, exemptions, overpayments, new benefit claims and benefit renewals. They also deal with any changes in personal or financial circumstances that may affect benefit claims, and discretionary housing payments.
