Property Assessment Scam Hits The Mother Lode
Sonora, CA — Mother Lode property owners are starting to receive a scam notice from Property Tax Reassessment (P.O. Box 25519) in Los Angeles.
The company claims it will reassess your property for a fee of $179 so you can take advantage of lower taxes due to the downturn in the housing market. In addition if the service fee is not received by 2/26/09 you will be charged a $30 late fee.
From Tuolumne County Assessor-Recorder Ken Caetano, "The County Assessor’s Office will do reviews of property values at no cost. Don’t be misled … it is not a solicitation from a governmental agency because we do not charge to do reassessments of property."
Should you have any questions you can contact the Assessor-Recorder’s office at (209) 533-5535.
