Your council tax bill explained
0% district increase for 2023/2024
Whilst overall local council tax bills have gone up this year, Lichfield District Council has frozen the amount of council tax we will charge this year to help keep your bill as low as possible.
Whilst you pay your council tax bill to us, we only keep 9% of what you pay and distribute the rest (91%) to other service providers:
- 71% of what you pay goes to Staffordshire County Council - this year the county council increased their charge by 4.99%.
- 13% goes to Staffordshire Commissioner (police and crime) - this year the commissioner increased their charge by 4.83%.
- 4% goes to Staffordshire Commissioner (fire and rescue) - this year the commissioner increased their charge by 4.85%.
- 3% (on average) goes to your local parish council.
