A LANDLORD says he is still waiting for a council tax bill for one of his properties - 12 months after requesting one from officers.
Mandip Lalli says he has now had a visit from bailiffs demanding payment of the bill.
But he is still waiting to find out how much is owed to Kirklees Council.
The claims follow news that Kirklees has one of the worst council tax collection rates in the country.
Mr Lalli, who lives in New North Road, Edgerton, owns a property in Mountjoy Road, Edgerton, which he rents out to to students.
In June last year he notified Kirklees Council that four students had moved in.
But it was only last month, a year on, that he received a letter from the Council Tax office asking for more information about his tenants.
"The students only live here between September and late May and then they return home," said Mr Lalli.
"I've tried to get information from the home addresses I have for them, but am still waiting."
In the meantime he has received a visit from bailiffs asking for money but he says they left empty-handed when he explained the situation.
In a statement from Kirklees Council a spokesman said determining who was liable to pay Council Tax for houses in multiple occupation was a complex process.
But she said: "If the property is solely occupied by full time students (as defined in the council tax regulations) then there is no liability for anyone to pay council tax for that property."
The spokeswoman said they could not discuss individual cases but officers will be contacting Mr Lalli to discuss the issues involved.
