Pay your Council Tax
There are a number of ways to pay your Council Tax.
This is the easiest and most convenient way to pay your Council Tax.
Pay your council tax online using a debit or credit card* (*Please note that if you pay by credit card, you will incur an extra fee equal to 2% of your payment). Please have your Council Tax account number to hand.
Over the telephone

At the Post Office or a Payzone outlet
Payments at the Post Office are made using a magnetic stripe payment card.
If you already have a Post Office payment card, you can use this to pay at any Post Office. If you wish to order a card, contact us and we can issue one.
Payments must be made by cash only. No fee is payable at any Post Office as long as the payment is made with the magnetic stripe card. Your payment will be credited to your Council Tax account within 5 days and you will be issued with a paper receipt when you make the payment.
Cheques and postal orders should be crossed and made payable to the 'City and County of Swansea'.
Please write your name, address and Council Tax account number on the back of the cheque and then post it to:
The Head of Financial Services
Please do not send post dated cheques as we are unable to accept these. Also do not send cash in the post.
Please make sure you have your Council Tax account number with you when you come to make the payment and know how much you need to pay.
You can pay your bill straight into the Council's bank account:
