Council tax payers in Ipswich still owe the council more than £3m in unpaid taxes, a Freedom of Information request has revealed.
The East Anglian Daily Times report:
MORE than £3million of council tax was still owed to the cash-strapped borough at the end of last year, shock figures revealed today.
But despite the size of the outstanding debt, councillors have defended the sum – claiming the authority is a “very successful collector” of the tax.
The revelations came following a Freedom of Information request submitted by The Ipswich Star, which showed the council was left chasing £3,194,638.01 of unpaid council tax on December 31, 2012.
