Council tax

The council tax you pay funds services provided by Dacorum Borough Council, Hertfordshire County Council and Hertfordshire Police. If you live in an area with a parish or town council, some of the council tax also goes to them.

Although we are responsible for collecting council tax, only 12p of every £1 we collect is kept by us to pay for Dacorum Borough Council services. The rest of what we collect goes to Hertfordshire County Council who receive 78p of every £1 and to the Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire who gets a further 10p.

Take a look at our road map and see how your council tax is spent. Or watch our short video below.
