This data set shows council tax data it has been taken from LG Inform This data shows council tax, average charge per chargeable dwelling. This is the total council tax payable in an area divided by the total number of chargeable dwellings in the area. The total amount of council tax is the sum of the amounts requested: a) by the billing authority; b) by major precepting authorities covering the billing authority's area The amount at c) is the total amount requested by parish and town councils, averaged across the whole of the billing authority's area. The average council tax per dwelling is generally lower than the average Band D council tax. This is mainly because, in England as a whole, bands A to C account for almost two-thirds of all dwellings. Source name: Communities and Local Government Collection name: Council tax

Council Tax Band D amounts paid This data has been pulled from Inform and opened under the open government licence. It has been opened under data set ID – 280 Council tax average band D tax bill - total amount paid by the residents in the billing authority in Plymouth Council tax average band D tax bill - total amount paid by the residents in the billing authority - This represents the total band D council tax requirement that residents in the local billing authority area would pay. Council tax can be measured in 'Band D' or in 'per dwelling' terms. Band D has historically been used as the standard for comparing council tax levels between and across local authorities, as this measure is not affected by the varying distribution of properties in bands that can be found across authorities. This is the council tax payable on a Band D dwelling occupied as a main residence by two adults, before any reductions due to discounts, exemptions or council tax benefit. This definition is widely regarded as a benchmark when comparing council tax levels in different areas or over time. Billing authorities are the 326 authorities (354 before 1 April 2009) that are empowered to set and collect council taxes, and manage a Collection Fund, on behalf of themselves and other local authorities in their area. In England, district councils (metropolitan and shire), the Council of the Isle of Scilly, unitary authorities, London boroughs, and the City of London are billing authorities.
