Council Tax Reform
Government and Housing Committee is undertaking an inquiry into council tax
reforms, with specific focus on the policy and legislative proposals set out in
the Welsh Government’s consultation document, A Fairer Council Tax launched
in July 2022. The Committee will explore the impact the proposals might have on
local government finance and administration, and the potential to simplify the
framework of council tax discounts and reductions.
The inquiry will look specifically at:
>>>The potential impact of a council tax
revaluation and revised council tax bands on local government finances and
>>>The potential benefits and disadvantages of
regular property revaluations on local government administration, and the
impact on those liable to pay council tax.
>>>The effectiveness of the framework for council
tax discounts and exemptions, and how the system could be developed and
>>>The case for changing the Council Tax Reduction
Scheme which supports the most vulnerable low-income households, and scope for
improving the system.
