Anyone got any experience in this?
Through conversation a peer suggested that i am paying too much council tax. So i put in a request to have my banding reevaluated. I received a letter today saying i do not meet the valid criteria to have my band reevaluated. Apparently you have to request this within 6 months of paying tax on the property. I've lived there for more than 6 months.
Its not something I've ever questioned, i just paid it. I'm going to appeal because near identical houses on my street are 2 bands lower and i'm on the same band as houses valued £150k more than mine.
Just wondering if anyone has been through the process?
PM me if you have any problems - I used to work for the Valuation Office Agency in a previous (and much, much less enjoyable) incarnation
Best action initially is to write to them and tell them why you think it is wrong & await their comments. Not possible to appeal after the specific time periods.
