Your FAQ

Question: My property has been empty and unfurnished for over 6 months I currently pay a full Council Tax charge will the changes affect me?

Answer: There will be no change until the property has been empty for 2 years. The Isle of Wight Council is proposing to follow the Government proposal that a 50% premium is levied after the property has been empty for 2 years therefore the council tax charge will increase to 150% after two years.
