Each Council Tax bill is calculated by applying the appropriate band rate for the local authority, then applying any discounts, exemptions and reductions. Chart 4 illustrates the breakdown of the gross Council Tax potential yield into Council Tax billed and the amounts not billed due to Council Tax Reduction ( CTR), discounts and exemptions. This publication is concerned with the Council Tax billed each year, which is currently approximately £2.1 billion.
