How do I see my Council Tax online? 

You will need a MyScotBorders account before you can view your Council Tax online. If you haven't registered for a MyScotBorders account yet, you can register online.

You will also need to be liable for Council Tax in the Scottish Borders. This means you are responsible for paying any Council Tax payments that are due, and your name appears on the Council Tax bill. 

Once you have signed into your MyScotBorders account click on View Council Tax.  You will need to select the option to register to use additional Council Tax services to link your MyScotBorders account to your Council Tax account. 

You will be asked to provide the following: 

  • First and last name (as appears on your Council Tax account)
  • Your Council Tax account number 
  • Your Online Reference number 
  • Postcode 

Once your account has been linked, you will be able to access your Council Tax information using your MyScotBorders account log in. 

If you’re having problems registering for you online Council Tax account, or you are unsure where to find the required information, see our register for an account webpage
