How we calculate and spend council tax
When you pay your council tax bill, you are helping to fund services provided by Staffordshire County Council, Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, Staffordshire Fire Authority, local parish councils, and us. We only keep around 10% of your charge, which means an average local household will pay Lichfield District Council about £3.27 a week for the services we deliver to you - such as emptying your bins, cleaning local roads and running leisure centres and parks.
Read our latest council tax leaflet to find out how much you will pay and how we distribute and spend the money we receive.
The exact amount you will pay depends on the your property valuation band - the lower the band you are in, the less you will pay and vice versa. What you pay is also affected by the parish you live in, as the amount each parish council charges differs.
