The council tax band is what determines how much council tax you pay.

We are aware that a company has been ringing homes in Wrexham, offering to appeal Council Tax bandings on behalf of residents for a fee of £150.

There is nothing illegal or invalid about the offer, it’s just that you don’t need to pay for this service.

If you want to challenge the banding of your home, just get in touch with the Valuation Office –the body of HMRC responsible for calculating property bands.

There’s no charge for the service – it’s completely free.

You can find out more about Council Tax banding appeals by visiting the Government’s website.
