The Council Tax Charge for your home is calculated based on the value of your property. The Assessor for Central Scotland has determined the value of your home as at the 1st April 1991 and then placed your home in one of 8 valuation bands.
For any new dwellings, the valuation is still based on the assessors opinion of what your home would have been worth in 1991, subject to a number of important statutory assumptions.
Clackmannanshire Council has agreed to increase the Band D charge by 3% for 2017/18. All other charges are set in proportion to Band D as determined by legislation.
For 2017/18, the proportions payable in Bands E-H, know as the multiplier have increased and all households affected were provided information on the change and what help and assistance might be available.

The bills for Council Tax include water supply and waste water collection charges as set by Scottish Water. By law the Council must include these charges on bills but it is not responsible for setting them. For more information on the water and waste water charges contact the Scottish Water customer helpline on 0845 601 885.
Example: To determine the Band E charge:
Take the Band D charge from the Table above (£1,182.44). For Band E the charge is 473/360ths of Band D, this means that you divide the Band D charge by 360 and multiply by 473 to get the resulting Council Tax charge.
