Your bill explained

We collect your council tax - but only a small part of it is for our services (around 10%). 

The biggest part of your bill helps pay for Leicestershire County Council services - schools, roads, social services and more.  

On your bill you will also see charges from parish councils, Leicesteshire and Rutland Combined Fire Authority and the Police and Crime Commissioner.

The figure for town and parish councils will vary in other areas of the district. You will have on your bill a charge from your town or parish council, or special expenses.

How much will I have to pay? 

What you pay depends on where you live and which band your home is in. Parish councils charge different amounts.
