Council Tax and Benefits


Council Tax is charged on every home and is collected by local authorities to pay for local services.

In 2016/17 Colchester Borough Council is once again not increasing the amount of Council Tax you pay that's needed to fund Colchester Borough Council's services. This part of your Council Tax has stayed the same since 2010/11.

The Council is also responsible for collecting Council Tax on behalf of a number of other organisations.  Details of these and any increases in their portion of the overall 2016/17 Council Tax payment are shown on your annual bill.
