Council Tax

Council Tax payments from households fund part of the Council's budget to deliver some of the public services in the area. Your bill payments are split between Surrey County Council, Surrey Police and Runnymede Borough Council.

You will soon receive your Council Tax bill for the 2021-2022 financial year. If you already pay via direct debit, the bill will be for your information only. There is no need to contact us if you wish to continue paying by direct debit.

Customer Services are currently experiencing a high volume of calls due to annual billing. We are working through any changes that you have informed us of and you will receive a new bill once the changes have been made.
