I’ve just been doing some hunting round to work up a comparison of the Somerset districts basic Council Tax. The graph below includes the very significant County Council tax, the Police precept, the Fire and Rescue Service Precept and each District’s own Council Tax element. It does not include the local Parish or Town Council precept, which can vary widely.
Those of you with very acute eyesight will detect that South Somerset does actually have a very, very slightly higher tax level For a Band D property it’s £9.46 a year or 0.6% higher than Mendip, equivalent to 18p a week. I hope that’s not enough to make anyone want to move there!
