Council Tax

The council tax bill is shared between a number of public services including council services, police and fire.

The council tax you pay for policing and services to support victims and reduce offending equates to a percentage of the total, which varies depending on where you live.


The portion of council tax that residents of Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton pay towards services that keep them safer is one of the lowest in the country and accounts for one third of the total funding available for these services locally; the other two-thirds is made up of a national grant from Government.
