Yea, leave in county hands, like the beach in Malibu that the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors hasn't quite gotten around to making public yet ... sure, they agreed to make it public when they bought the land with public money, then later again when they got state money to put in a stairway ... but those movie stars and Michael Eisner are worried the public will mess up the beach or hurt themselves, so it still remains nice and secluded.


Alert - Property Tax Adjusters Inc. is a Scam

TO California Property Owners:

There is a company called Property Tax Adjusters, Inc. based in San Diego County has been sending out scam letters regarding property tax reduction for a fee of $125.00 in the Silicon Valley (depends on where your property is). The company is NOT affiliated with the county assessor's office, or ANY government agency.

The key thing to note is that as a property owner, there is NO COST for you to directly contact your county assessor regarding a reassessment of your property taxes.

In fact, many counties such as Alameda, Contra Costa, Solano, and San Joaquin are currently doing large-scale evaluation of properties to see whether property taxes will be reduced at no cost to the homeowner.

The Alameda County District Attorney is investigating Property Tax Adjusters, Inc. as well as another company called Connection Plus Inc. of Foster City. While their solicitations may not be illegal.

It is interesting to note that the return envelope provided with Property Tax Adjuster's mailing is addressed not to a physical headquarters location, but a rented personal mailbox at a UPS Store in the same city as the homeowner to whom the mailing was sent.

Homeowners are best advised to toss this Property Tax Adjusters, Inc. mailing in the trash. There is no need to pay for a service that you can get from the county directly for free.

The place is very decent and a good area to raise the kids.
