Consultation on a fairer Council Tax

Wednesday 20 September 2023 @ 11:59 pm

The present council tax system is unfair and regressive because it levies a higher tax rate on lower value properties, and a lower rate for higher value properties. A chargeable property in a Band H has a council tax liability of about three times that of a Band A property, but is, on average, worth about fifteen times the value.

The Scottish Government and the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA – on behalf of local government) are inviting responses to this consultation on a fairer council tax system.

The deadline for submissions is Wednesday 20 September 2023.
