/ Home / Your Council / Council Tax / Appeals
If you are unhappy with a Council Tax decision taken by the Council on any of the following matters then you have the right to an appeal.
You can appeal against:
- you being named as the person liable for payment of Council Tax;
- a decision not to award Discount or Disablement Band Reduction; or
- a decision not to designate the property as an exempt dwelling.
If you wish to appeal against any of the above decisions, your initial appeal must be made in writing to our Operations Manager, PO Box 5650, Inverness, IV3 5YX. You must tell us why you think our Operations Team has taken the wrong decision. If you are not happy with the outcome of your initial appeal, please write to the Head of Exchequer, PO Box 5650, Inverness, IV3 5YX clearly stating why you disagree with the Operations Manager's decision. If you disagree with the decision of the Head of Exchequer you have the right to an independent appeal to the Valuation Appeal Committee. Appeals to the Valuation Appeal Committee must be made in writing to the Head of Exchequer, PO Box 5650, Inverness, IV3 5YX within 4 months from the date of your original appeal to our Operations Manager.
If you have appealed against your Council Tax liability, and/or applied for Benefit or other reduction/amendments, you are required by law to pay the amount detailed on your most recent Council Tax bill until the matter has been dealt with and a revised bill is issued to you. If you fall into arrears the Council will take further action to recover the sums due.
