Council Tax News and awareness


04 June 2019 - New property tax and landlord liability for paying

A report by the Labour Party suggests that they are, once, again considering a policy of replacing Council Tax with a new Property Tax. This Property Tax would be based on the value of the land, rather than the just the dwelling, and would be regularly updated unlike the current Council Tax scheme.

The proposed system would include a number of specific changes when compared to the existing scheme - firstly, that the Property Tax would be set at a national, rather than a local, level and secondly, that the owner/landlord of the property would be responsible for paying the Property Tax (Similar to the HMO system under Council Tax).
