What was the council’s income from council tax? 

Devon County Council is not responsible for the collection of Council Tax,  therefore does not hold the information requested.  Council Tax collection is a function of District and Unitary councils in Devon. Please contact them directly using the information on the link provided. 

For the past seven years, Devon County Council’s budget book includes Council Tax.
