Council Tax

mother and two children  

Council Tax is an important source of funding for your council.

It helps us to:

  • raise standards of education;
  • protect local communitites;
  • care for vulnerable people and elderly people;
  • improve the environment of our towns, villages and countryside; and
  • support and develop businesses.

With your help, we aim to make West Lothian a better place to live, work and raise a family.
