Council tax - appeal rights

Appeal rights

If you have recently purchased your property, you may have a legal right of appeal if you disagree with your valuation band. This should be discussed with the Assessor at: Dunbartonshire and Argyll and Bute Valuation Joint Board, Kilbrannan House, Bolgam Street, Campbeltown PA28 6HZ or 235 Dumbarton Road, Clydebank G81 4XJ.

Appeals, if you disagree with the decision to hold you liable to pay Council Tax or with the calculation of your bill, should be made in writing, within 28 days of receiving your bill, to:

Head of Financial Services,
Argyll and Bute Council,
Kintyre House,
Snipefield Industrial Estate
Campbeltown, PA28 6SY

Should you disagree with the Council’s decision, there is a further right of appeal to a Valuation Appeals Committee.  Your appeal to the Valuation Appeals Committee must be within four months of the date of your original appeal.  Even if you make an appeal you must continue to pay your Council Tax. If your appeal is successful, any overpaid Council Tax will be refunded or transferred to reduce any other outstanding debt to Argyll and Bute Council.
