Is it time to revalue Britainís council tax bands? MoneySaving Poll Results

Souk

In England and Scotland your council tax band depends on your homeís value in 1991 (Wales 2005), when the last (and only) valuation was done.

Itís likely 100,000s of homes are in the wrong band as drive-by 'second-gear valuations' were commonplace. (See our Council Tax Check & Challenge guide.)

However, redoing it would likely see widespread changes to valuations and risk some paying substantially more (others less). Is it worth it? Some may argue the whole system should be scrapped, but thatís a different poll. SoÖ

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
