The Council Tax Handbook is the most widely used practical guide to all aspects of the council tax as it applies in England, Wales and Scotland.

• how homes are valued for tax purposes and how valuations can be changed 
• discounts and the new reduction schemes 
• the powers of local authorities 
• tax collection, appeals, enforcement and bailiffs’ powers
