                 A      Council Tax Bill – from 4 Bedfordshire Way, Wokingham.
                        Council Tax is a local taxation system used in England, Scotland and Wales. It is a tax
                        on domestic property which was introduced in 1993. Each property is assigned one of
                        eight bands (A to H) based on property value, and the tax is set as a fixed amount for
                        each band. Some property is exempt from the tax, some people are exempt from the
                        tax, while some get a discount.
