Pay your Council Tax
How can I pay?
You are under no obligation to pay your whole Council Tax bill
at once. Many people choose to spread the cost throughout the year,
paying their bill in monthly instalments. District and borough
councils offer different methods of payment, including:
- direct debit.
Online payments may also be available. Please see district and
borough websites, or your Council Tax bill, for full details.
All enquiries about Council Tax payments for West Sussex should
be made to your local district or borough council.
