That's why, not listening to Swiss news etc. costs double.

Joke aside:
As EE wrote: Everybody has to pay it now.
  • Check the date mentioned on the bill. Is it for last year too maybe? And did you not get a bill last year? (They messed up big time when they took over - actually not them but the communes, so let's not blame them for it) and they're bound to sort it out now.
  • If the bill is for two years ahead: It is wrong. Return it with a remark on it (copy that before you send it off!!).
  • If the bill is dated for one year it is obviously wrong. Do the same as above.
They've sent two bills, one for 2019 and one for 2020. They seem to be mixing up the system, shouldn't they make you pay either retrospectively or for the future? What bothers me is having one single bill for 700 francs.

Is it two now or one single?

However, obviously last year you slipped through the cracks (you were all cheerful about that back then, eih? ) due to the mess the communes made when they were supposed to deliver the data on households. But nothing ever gets forgotten here. So Fr. 700.00 it is now.

edit: Maybe this other EFer, who's chasing them for his bill in the other thread is not so wrong after all. Although he could save the energy and just put the 350.00 aside somewhere.

No I did not, because last year I paid the bill for the 2018's months that I was asked to pay - I can't recall how many, but I think it was from August to December 2018. So, logically, I was expecting a bill for 2019 now.
