Council Tax is related to the valuation of your property. Each property has been valued and placed in one of eight council tax bands (labelled A through to H) by the Valuation Office Agency.
The tax band is assigned based on the estimated value of the property at 1 April 1991, they do not relate to the value of your home today.
Any improvements or alterations made to the property may affect its value or band category, but will not be taken into consideration until the property is sold.
