Consultation description

We are seeking views on:

  • completing a council tax revaluation of all 1.5 million properties in Wales to rebalance the system to reflect property values. The current system is now nearly twenty years out of date
  • designing a new system of bands and tax rates that is more progressive, including considering adding more bands to the top and bottom ends of the scale if needed
  • revaluing more frequently to keep council tax fairly distributed on a more regular basis.
  • improving the framework of discounts, disregarded persons, exemptions and premiums to ensure the arrangements are aligned to our goals
  • improving the Council Tax Reduction Scheme which provides support to low-income households
