Council Tax

Council Tax Distribution Coin Chart

Most of the money for providing services to you comes from central Government and other grants. In Wyre Forest, just under £6 million is collected through Council Tax.

We collect the Council Tax on behalf of all of the authorities shown on the pie chart. The total amount is then split to provide the services that are part of your everyday life.

In 2014/15 residents will be paying £1532.97 per year on average (for a Band D property) of that, £201.45 goes to the District Council, which is just £3.87 per week. 

View our information leafletCouncil Tax amounts for 2014/15 and breakdown of where your money goes.

Financial help is available to residents within the Wyre Forest area to help towards Council Tax liabilities. 

Please be aware that if you don't pay your Council Tax bill and your account is passed to Enforcement Agents an immediate fee of £75.00 will be added to the outstanding balance of your account.
