Council Tax bands and charges

Every home in Dacorum falls into one of eight bands, from A to H. The Council Tax you pay is determined by your property's band. We don't assign your band. This is decided by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA). Your band is based on your property's market value as of 1 April 1991.

Check your banding

How to challenge your Council Tax band

If you think your home has been valued incorrectly you can ask the VOA to check your band. This is a free service. You will need to provide evidence to support your claim.

While you are waiting for a decision from the VOA, you must continue to pay your Council Tax in line with the last bill sent to you. If your property's band is lowered, resulting in a credit on your Council Tax, we will refund you.

Charges for 2024-2025

We collect your Council Tax on behalf of Dacorum Borough Council, Hertfordshire County Council, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire and the parish and town councils. Council Tax rises are set individually by each of these organisations.

We have raised our element of the Council Tax by 2.99 per cent, which equates to £6.66 per year for a band D property.
