A NUMBER of residents in Ilminster have not yet received their council tax bills despite the first payments being taken.

Linda Vijeh, who represents Ilminster on Somerset County Council, told the town council a number of households had not been given their bills and “had gone astray”.

South Somerset District Council, which is in charge of collecting council taxes, said it had reports from a small number of addresses in Ilminster who have not received their council tax bills.

A spokesman said: “If you’re yet to receive your bill please call us on 01935-462462 or preferably email us on revenues@southsomerset.gov.uk and our revenues team can arrange for a copy bill to be sent to your address.”
