Ways to pay your Council Tax


You can make a payment towards your Council Tax account by cheque. You’ll need to:

Once you've written your cheque, post it to:

  • Council Tax
  • Swale Borough Council
  • Swale House
  • East Street
  • Sittingbourne
  • Kent
  • ME10 3HT

You’ll need to allow seven working days for your payment to show on your Council Tax account.

What happens next
