Consultation on Council Tax
At the recent community council meeting it was recommended that we publicise this survey and encourage Oldmeldrum residents to take the time to express their views.
The Scottish Government and the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA – on behalf of local government) are inviting responses to this consultation on a fairer council tax system, which concerns the council tax charges (also referred to as multipliers) for properties in valuation bands E to H.
The present council tax system is perceived by some as unfair and regressive because it levies a higher tax rate on lower value properties, and a lower rate for higher value properties.
This consultation seeks views as to whether those in properties in the highest bands should be making a greater contribution, where they can afford to do so.
