Council Tax 2017-18

The amount you pay for policing and public safety services in Northamptonshire depends on which of the eight council tax bands your property falls into, based on the capital value in 1991. This should be clearly stated, along with your district or borough rate, in your council tax bill.

Council tax payers in Northamptonshire will pay an average of less than 8p a week more for improved policing from April 1st. This is a 1.99 per cent rise in the policing precept – the amount of the council tax bill paid directly to fund policing.
