Tulare County Assessor warns Homeowners of Mailer

  Tulare County’s property owners should avoid a mailer in which a company is asking for $25 fee to file a home owner’s exemption application which can be completed for free, Tulare County Assessor/Clerk-Recorder Roland Hill announced today.

  Hill said the mailer, from Property Tax Assessor’s Corp., offers to assist homeowners in obtaining a homeowner’s exemption for $25. "This isn’t the first time that this company has mailed out such offers," Hill said. "Naturally, this service is provided free of charge by the Assessor’s Office."

  Hill said any property owner who receives a solicitation offering help with property taxes should contact the Assessor’s Office to make sure the service is not available for free.

  Property owners who have questions about homeowner’s exemptions, or who wish to request a review of their assessed values, can call the Assessor’s Office between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday at (559) 636-5100.
