How much Council Tax will I have to pay?
Adult Social Care precept (extra tax)
The Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government has made an offer to Adult Social Care authorities. ('Adult social care authorities' are local authorities which have functions under Part 1 of the Care Act 2014, namely county councils in England, district councils for an area in England for which there is no county council, London borough councils, the Common Council of the City of London and the Council of the Isles of Scilly.)
The offer is the option of an Adult Social Care authority being able to charge an additional 'precept' on its Council Tax for financial years from the financial year beginning in 2016 without holding a referendum, to assist the authority in meeting expenditure on adult social care. Subject to the annual approval of the House of Commons, the Secretary of State intends to offer the option of charging this 'precept' at an appropriate level in each financial year up to and including the financial year 2019 to 2020.
Parish precepts (extra taxes) and leaflets
Parish precepts are additional taxes charged on each property to fund the town or parish council. The precepts are used to fund activities that benefit your community. Read the documents below for a list of parish precepts.
Winnersh precept error
The parish precept increase percentage for Winnersh, as shown on the Annual Council Tax bills recently sent out, is incorrect. The bills show a Parish Council precept increase of 2.5 percent when the true figure is actually 0 percent. The annual charges on the Council Tax bill for Winnersh Parish are the correct figures.
