Council tax bands and charges

Each property in Cambridge is in one of eight council tax bands.

Use our ‘my account’ system to check your council tax band – in the system, use the ‘property enquiry’ link to check your address.

We don’t decide the council tax band of properties. If you think your property is in the wrong band, find out how to challenge your council tax band on the GOV.UK website.

Beware of council tax scams – the GOV.UK website lists some common ones.

The table below shows the current band rates:
