Tayside Valuation Joint Board
This site provides details of the structure of Tayside Valuation Joint Board and details of its Membership. It also provides information about the Assessor and Electoral Registration Officer and his staff, the Valuation Roll, Council Tax Valuation List and the Electoral Register.
Tayside Valuation Joint Board covers the local authority areas of Dundee City, Perth & Kinross and Angus Councils.
The Tayside Assessor is responsible for the valuation of non-domestic subjects for rating and the valuation and banding of domestic subjects for council tax, for the three Council areas. Tayside Assessor has also been appointed Electoral Registration Officer for both Perth & Kinross and Angus Councils, and in that capacity is responsible for the compilation of the Electoral Register for these two authorities.

Applications to register to vote
All applications must be received no later than midnight, 12 working days before the date of poll. You can register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote or call the Electoral Registration office in Forfar on 01307 462416 or in Perth on 01738 630303 to request an application form.
In order to vote by post, completed application forms must be received by the Registration Office no later than 5.00pm, 11 working days before the date of poll. Only electors who have been fully registered under the new Individual Electoral Registration system will be able to vote by post.
In order to vote by proxy, completed application forms must be received by the Registration Office no later than 5.00pm, 6 working days before the date of the poll. Only electors who have been fully registered under the new Individual Electoral Registration system will be able to appoint or act as a proxy.
On 3 August 2015, every household in Angus and Perth & Kinross was issued with a Household Enquiry Form to establish who lives in the property and is eligible to register to vote. All electors currently registered will have their name pre-printed on the form.
A response is required even if the name(s) of the electors listed in the Household Enquiry Form have not changed.
If anyone is not named on the form and is eligible to vote then their name should be added and the form returned. The elector can then either register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote or an Invitation To Register will be sent out.
Anyone who has moved from the address should have their name crossed out.
Visits will be made to all non responding households or electors in an effort to compile an accurate register before publication of the revised register on 1 December 2015.
