Council Tax

Home > Our Information > Finances > Council Tax

The PCC is responsible for setting the local police ‘precept’ – the amount people pay through their council tax for policing.

Each year we consult the public about the amount they are willing to pay for policing as part of their council tax bill. We also produce a Council Tax Leaflet giving council taxpayers information about where their money is going to be spent.

This leaflet, the latest of which can be read below, is also delivered to households in the Thames Valley.

Council Tax Frequently Asked Questions 2022/23

You can also read the report from the Police and Crime Panel and the Police and Crime Commissioner’s response on the precept:
