Council Tax

Story location: Home / Blog / coventry /

It's fun dealing with Coventry City Council. I received a Council Tax bill from them last month for my old address (which was shared with 2 other people). The council, displaying their usual flair for efficiency, didn't get around to sending us the bill for the property until 5 months after we had moved out. It took them a further year to track me down and demand payment.

Unfortunately as I seem to be the only one still living in Coventry they are demanding that I either provide the names and addresses of the other two, or pay the full amount and then try to claim the money back from the others. They offered no other help and basically said that I was responsible for sorting it out.

Thankfully I still had Nathan's mobile number so I phoned him and he got in touch with Rachel. Rachel paid her share on-line although (carelessly or otherwise) managed to round it down by nearly £2. Nathan claims the cheque for his share is 'in the post'. The council have offered a slight extension while I wait for the post office to complete their tardy business and perform the herculean task of moving a letter the 5 miles from Bedworth to Coventry. Hopefully that'll be the end of the matter.
