Appeal a Decision about your Council Tax Support
If we’ve looked over a decision we’ve made and you still think it’s wrong, you can appeal at the Valuation Tribunal Service
You can make an appeal directly to the Valuation Tribunal Service about a decision we’ve made. We recommend that you ask us to look over the decision again before appealing.
What to do after we’ve looked over the decision
If you have already asked us to look at a decision again and, following our response to you, you still think the decision is wrong (even if we have changed the original decision) you can then make an appeal direct to the Valuation Tribunal Service.
You can also make an appeal direct to the Valuation Tribunal if you have already asked us to look at a decision again but have not received a response from us within 2 months.
Details of how to appeal to the Valuation Tribunal Service will be given on your decision letter.
